It’s hard to believe that it’s already been 10 years since planes flew into the World Trade Center, but this Sunday marks the anniversary of the day that changed the world we live in. If you are looking for some way to observe the 10th anniversary of 9/11, there are many events happening across North Texas in remembrance of Patriot Day.

On Sunday, 343 firefighters from 83 departments in 4 states in their full protective gear will climb the stairs of Renaissance Tower in downtown Dallas for the first ever Dallas Stair Climb to remember the 343 FDNY firefighters that lost their lives as they responded to the tragedy at the World Trade Center. The first Stair Climb was held on September 11, 2005 in Denver, CO. For more information for this weekend’s climb in Dallas, go to www.dallasstairclimb.com.

Also on Sunday, DART bus and train operators will make announcement at 7:45 AM CST, which is the local time when the first plane hit the World Trade Center, to invite customers to participate in a moment of silent remembrance honoring the victims and families affected by the 9/11 attacks.

Two North Texas cities will have pieces of the World Trade Center on display. The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History will have a beam 36 feet long and weighing 6,500 pounds that once supported floors 101-103 of the North Tower on display during a ceremony on Sunday morning. Euless will also have a ceremony at 7:46 AM CST on Sunday for a 12 foot WTC beam they will have on display at the Fire Administration building located at 201 N. Ector Drive.
