Attendance Tips

  • A free parking shuttle between Sloan Creek Intermediate School (440 Country Club Road, Fairview, TX 75069) and the Heard will be in rotation the length of the event.
  • Parking is free for all attendees. On-site parking is available, but limited in quantities.
  • Please carpool when possible. This will make parking easier for you and all attendees, it saves gas, and reduces pollution!
  • Please consider taking the shuttle rather than parking on-site if you do not have strollers, etc. This will make it easier for not only those with disabilities, and families with younger children, but also you! Your neighbors (and we) will thank you for your kindness!
