Thank you all for coming and supporting our first annual Hillcrest Spring Fling on May 14th in Owyhee Park. We had hundreds come from all over the neighborhood to support our community and enjoy the festivities. Here are some of the photos from the event. There were many more taken. If you’d like a copy of any of the images please contact Jolyn Laney with Laney Photography
We hope to continue this community event next year, so keep a lookout for it in the green, Hillcrest Real Estate and Community newsletter I send out early next year.
Activities and Events
For the first annual event, we went all out to make it memorable, after all, Hillcrest is a one-of-a-kind community and deserves the best.
There were two food trucks at the event, The Rusty Dog, serving gourmet hot dogs, fries, and drinks and for the more mature, outdoor-loving pallet we have Smoked & Baked BBQ. If you RSVPd you will get two free vouchers to sample the trucks per household and a free drink at the Registration booth (BBQ or Rusty Dog voucher for adults and Rusty dog for kids). The trucks had lots of other goodies if you want to try more or get an extra plate for reasonable prices. Click on the links above for more on their menus and prices. There was also a cotton candy spinner spinning non-stop during the event and everyone was welcome to try one.
We were so fortunate to have a talented family photographer at the event. Not to mention her family is part of the Hillcrest Community. Jolyn Laney with Laney Photography was there to capture this special day, but also to take family, couple, and friend photos over at her booth. If you haven’t already signed up for a private session, you can make sure to get a photo or two of you and your loved ones at the event. Hopefully, you brought your matchy shirts and best park clothes and don’t forget to smile.
Lauren and the Nostalgics played from 12:30 – 3:30 their blend of pop/rock/blues/r&b covers and got everyone movin’ and groovin’!!! Neighbors brought their chair or blankets, and umbrellas at the start of the day and sprawled out and enjoy the music.
Kids from around the park grabbed a potato sack and hopped over to the finish line for a chance to show off their skills to their family and neighbors and won some fun prizes from local companies. Adults and kids alike enjoyed the hula hoops and other fun and games.
Most sponsors offered a raffle or gift and we had several winners that took home great loot and swag.
The 50′ inflatable obstacle course, smack in the middle of the park was a success. Both kids and adults climbed, slid, and tumbled down in glee. The talented Andrea blew everyone away with her one-of-a-kind beautiful face painting and her sidekick balloon twister, twisted up some incredible balloon animals, and well, whatever struck your fancy. For those looking to relax, but still, have a good time they checked out the reading corner set up at The Library! at Hillcrest’s tent and got a free comic book
