Held On Easter Saturday Each Year
FIT & FUN IN THE PARK…
Featuring the Heart of Heath 5K & 1-Mile Family Run
SATURDAY, APRIL 15, 2017
The Heart of Heath 5k was established in 1994 by a group of dedicated volunteers to help raise funds for the construction of Towne Center Park, located behind Heath City Hall.
Today, Towne Center Park is the “heart” of all City events, and this gathering has been expanded to include fitness FUN for the whole family including a new one-mile family run, life-size checkers, chess and other games, and complimentary healthy treats.
In the case of severe weather, safety procedures including RISD lightening policies will be followed.

INDEPENDENCE DAY IN THE PARK…
Featuring the Annual 4th of July Parade & Patriotic Celebration
For a patriotic hometown American experience, join the festivities at the City of Heath’s Annual Independence Day Parade on July 4.
Parade entry awards will be presented during a patriotic celebration immediately after the parade in Towne Center Park featuring a live barbershop quartet and free popsicles.
Staging for the parade is at 8 a.m., judging and awards are at 8:30 a.m., and the parade begins at 9 a.m. at Amy Parks-Heath Elementary School at 330 Laurence Drive. A Best Decorated Award is presented in several categories including: Float; Bicycle; Wagon/Stroller; Golf Cart; Off-Road Vehicle; and Antique Car. There are also awards for Best Costume; Most Patriotic Pet; Most Spirited; and the Mayor’s Award.
The City’s Special Events Board is encouraging a little friendly competition among neighborhoods with a new award for the BEST NEIGHBORHOOD/HOA FLOAT!
As always, the City of Heath invites veterans from any branch of the U.S. Military to ride in the parade on the Veterans Float.
“We have this float so that our community can honor our veterans for their extraordinary gift of service,” said Heath Mayor Lorne Liechty. “It is because of them and the many other brave men and women who have served in our Armed Forces that we are able to celebrate independence.”
Active members of the military are also encouraged to ride or march in the parade. For more information, please contact Norma Duncan at 972-771-6228.

Held On The First Friday In December Each Year
HOLIDAY IN THE PARK
This is an annual favorite featuring the musical talents of our local students, the Christmas tree lighting, a winter village with some of Dallas’ most popular food trucks, a cozy outdoor dining area warmed by holiday lights, a miniature train ride, and fun activity booths for the kids.
There’s always plenty of complimentary hot cocoa, while Mrs. Claus and her elves serve complimentary Christmas cookies, home baked and donated by the National Charity League and Rockwall Women’s League.
Of course, the star of the evening is Santa. After his grand arrival, he’s eager to visit and take photos with the children in his sleigh, nestled in a picture perfect scene. Bring your camera!
