Harvest Hustle - Nov 9th at Fair Park - Support the Homeless

On Saturday, Nov 9th, join other DFW families at Fair Park to help Dallas’ homeless by participating in Harvest Hustle


Slappy and Monday - Harvest Hustle

Family Friendly Fun

Make an ordinary day extraordinary by celebrating the magic of autumn and attending the Harvest Hustle, formerly the Help the Homeless Walk & 5K. Not only can you support this good cause with your participation, but you can also enjoy lots of family friendly entertainment at the event including appearances from Dallas/Fort Worth’s all-time favorite queen and king of laughter, Slappy and Monday; circus performances from Lone Star Circus, music, a slimy experience from Mad Science of Dallas, a mobile milking presentation by Southwest Dairy Farms, face painting and more!

Slappy and Monday will delight you with their hilarious antics. When we saw them perform during Cirque Banquiste, presented by Lone Star Circus last December, we laughed until our bellies ached. And, Lone Star Circus is not to be missed! Read about my family’s experience and check out the fabulous photos we took at Cirque Banquiste. Continue reading »

Help the Homeless Dallas Walk & 5K


Help the Homeless Walk & 5K is taking place on Saturday Nov 11th at the Fair Park Band Shell at 3pm. The registration deadline was Nov 10th, but there are lots of opportunities to volunteer at the event, or you can just stop by and show your support! Kids will enjoy lots of fun activities planned for the event.

Proceeds from this event benefit The Bridge, a campus of services from 14 co-located agencies who provide healthcare, mental health, and addiction services, along with services from VA, Social Security, Texas Workforce, and Legal Aid.  The agency is focused on getting the homeless back on their feet into health, jobs and housing. Visit for more information.

Note that The Bridge needs gently used or new blankets and you can drop them off at the event.
