In collaboration with the City of Dallas and following the success of last week’s #DFWOvation, Fort Worth will participate in a weekly display of appreciation for frontline workers. Thank You Thursdays begin this week across North Texas at 7 p.m.

Mayor Betsy Price and Mayor Eric Johnson of Dallas encourage residents in both cities to continue their ovations each Thursday evening as a way to show continued support and gratitude for the frontline workers in the battle against COVID-19.

Fort Worth will illuminate downtown buildings in blue lights. Residents throughout the Metroplex are asked to step outside their homes at 7 p.m. and give ovations to those working to protect others. Neighborhoods are encouraged to join to participate in this effort. Of course, everyone should wear a face mask and practice social distancing while participating.

“Last week’s outpouring of support for our frontline workers was incredibly successful and inspiring,” Price said. “These weekly ovations are a great way for our community to rally together, safely, and show our appreciation for those working tirelessly to battle COVID-19 and keep our community healthy and safe.”

The hashtag #ThankYouThursday will be used to follow all of the displays of gratitude shown on social media. Share acts of gratitude on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.
