Kick off the holidays with the Texas Health | Allen Holly Jolly Celebration presented by Credit Union of Texas! This longstanding Allen tradition features an annual 5K and fun run, light displays, kid-friendly attractions, gourmet food trucks, festive beverages, holiday photo ops and the lighting of the City of Allen Christmas tree. Thanks to our incredible partners, the event is free to attend!
Free parking is available on a first-come basis in Downtown Allen. Road closures in Downtown Allen will begin at 2 p.m. Please see the course map to see which roads will be closed.
PARKING DETAILS: We will be offering a shuttle service since there will be limited parking in Downtown Allen. There will be shuttle buses picking up at Lowery Ninth Grade Center (368 N. Greenville Avenue, Allen, Texas 75002) and dropping off at the Allen Senior Recreation Center (451 St. Mary Drive, Allen, Texas 75002). Buses will load near the Lowery Ninth Grade Center Gym (large parking lot off Jupiter Road between Greenville Avenue and Main Street). The drop-off location at the Allen Recreation Senior Center is 0.5 miles from the race start line so please plan accordingly if you will be utilizing the shuttle before the start of your race!
