We are excited to host our 11th Annual TXFallenPD Tribute Event on October 20 at The Shops at Highland Village. Since the beginning, the TXFallenPD Tribute Event has been a community event raising funds for the Texas Police Chiefs Association’s Fallen Officer Fund, which provides monetary assistance to the families of Texas Police Officers killed in the line of duty.
There are multiple ways that you can get involved.
Blue Line Saturday - October 13
The Village Church is hosting an inter-denominational time of worship on Saturday, October 13 from 3:00 - 5:00. Help us remember and honor those that have been killed in the line of duty and pray for those who continue to serve and protect.
Restaurant Week - October 14 through October 20
You don’t have to cook the week of October 14 through October 20! There are multiple Highland Village restaurants participating in Restaurant Week by donating a percentage of their sales to the Fallen Officer Fund. You can thank them for their commitment to our community by choosing to dine at these locations during Restaurant Week. Check out the calendar and make your plans now to visit these great restaurants in Highland Village and one bonus bakery in Flower Mound.
TXFallenPD Tribute Event - October 20
Join us on Saturday, October 20 for a full day of live music, entertainment, racing, vendors, and fun! We’ll kick off the day with a 20 mile bike road race at 7:50 followed by the 5K at 8:00. If you’re not an early riser, I don’t blame you. The afternoon starts with live entertainment from local music and dance studios at noon. Vendors and the kids zone will open at 3:00. We have not one, but two helicopters (including the DEA) landing at our Touch a Truck area at 3:45 to start the opening ceremonies at 4:00. The police bike race and obstacle course (new this year - you’ll definitely want to come see it) will run from 4:00 until they wrap up. Our headliner (Escape Band - The Essential Journey Experience) takes the stage at 7:00 and we will play our Memorial Video at 7:45 to remember those we have lost since our last race. Not to worry, we won’t end on a sad note, Escape will close us out and play until 9:00.
For all of you Ticketheads, be sure to come out on October 20 between 5:00 - 7:00 to check out their booth and chat with their promotions team!
