Honks For Hugs Parade

The City of Glenn Heights invites you to participate in the 1st Annual “Honks for Hugs” parade. The purpose of this parade is to lift the community spirit and create a sense of togetherness, as everyone has been in a state of quarantine due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Let’s show our community pride and bring some joy to our neighborhoods while maintaining safe social distancing practices!

To ensure that we circulate through every neighborhood in the City, we have set aside two days to host the event:

  • Wednesday, May 13, 2020 @ 3 pm- Dallas County/ DeSoto ISD neighborhoods
  • Thursday, May 14, 2020 @ 3 pm- Ellis County/ Red Oak ISD neighborhoods


  • Medical Professionals: We would like for essential medical professionals to participate in the parade to recognize them and thank them for their bravery working on the front-lines.
  • Class of 2020 Graduating Seniors: We would also like to extend the invitation to Glenn Heights graduating seniors to participate in the parade and be recognized for their accomplishments.
  • Neighbors, residents and friends: Please help encourage neighbors to line the streets in front of their home to cheer and participate in this community spirit initiative!
