Give Back to Your Community at Col-Met’s 2nd Annual Ride for a Cause

September 22, 2017 11:00 am

The Helping Hands of Rockwall is an organization devoted to lending a helping hand to those who need it. They provide financial assistance and medical support to underserved people in Rockwall. In order to continue with this worthy cause, Helping Hands needs support itself. Be part of that support system when you participate in Col-Met's 2nd Annual Ride for a Cause on Saturday, September 23rd.

The motorcycle ride and fun run registration fees benefit Helping Hands, so the perks of taking part are two-fold: you get a great workout and you give back. Even if you don't want to be part of the run or bike ride, you can still come out to the car show and carnival at Col-Met's facility. Kids can have their faces painted and grab a snow cone before having some fun racing remote-controlled cars. Meanwhile, adults can bid on items at the silent auction and enjoy live music provided by local bands. The fun unfolds from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., and admission to the festival and car show is free.

A world on the brink of war. A shocking murder carried out in a train car. A relentless hacker determined to rob civilians of billions. These are just a few of the scenarios you may encounter at Escapology in Rockwall.

Come to Rockwall's Escapology to experience the thrill of escaping a sinking submarine, shutting down a would-be terrorist, or any of its other adrenaline-inducing adventures.

Stock Up on Fresh Food at the Rockwall Farmers’ Market

September 7, 2017 3:01 pm

Summer may be coming to a close in a few short weeks, but the Rockwall Farmers' Market is keeping farm-to-table produce coming until the end of September. Every Saturday morning from 8 a.m. to noon, the Historic Downtown Square of Rockwall transforms into a fresh-air market where city-dwellers have direct access to fruits, veggies, meats, and other items cultivated by local purveyors.

More than 30 vendors come to the market each week, so there's always a large and varied selection. Grab grass-fed meats or farm-fresh eggs from one vendor; check out a colorful array of fruits and veggies from another. Pick up prepared foods like jam, pasta, and tamales. Or simply swing by to enjoy the live music that each Saturday morning promises. The market's last day of the season will be Saturday, September 30th.
