In an effort to end homelessness, the Harvest Hustle, formerly known as The Help The Homeless Walk & 5K Run, will be held on November 9 at Fair Park, in Dallas. Proceeds benefit the Metro Dallas Homeless Alliance, which provides solutions to prevent and end homelessness in Collin and Dallas counties. This year’s event is focused on securing funding to assure quality, effective services for children and other homeless persons.
In addition to the race, there will be circus performers with clowns, a stilt walker, performers from the Lone Star Circus, music performed by Phillipalooza, a petting zoo, pumpkin carving, carnival games, face painting, slime making with Mad Science, cookie decorating, a pumpkin patch and more.
