Our Good Neighbor Day Celebration is coming up on Sunday, October 3rd. It’s casual, there’s free entertainment, it’s open to everyone, and it’s a great way to catch up with neighbors and celebrate our wonderful neighborhood. Find all the details below and reach out to us if you have additional questions. Invite your family and neighbors to join us!
When: Sunday, October 3, 2021 from 4pm to 6pm
Where: Northwood Hills Elementary School. The entertainment will be on the backside of the school, near the playground. The food trucks will be parked in the parking lot along Meandering Way.
Entertainment: Pat Bywaters, Gateridge resident who entertained neighbors weekly with his “Tiny Porch Concerts” for the better part of the pandemic, has graciously agreed to perform live music for us. He will be joined by a lead guitarist and bass player. We will also provide a bounce house, an inflatable world of sports game, and a rock climb slide for our younger attendees.
Food: Two food trucks are scheduled to attend, Munchies and Frios Popsicles. They will be offering items for purchase, so bring cash or card if you’d like to buy from them. You are also welcome to bring your own picnic or snacks. NHHA will provide bottled water. To pre-order popsicles for the whole family to pick up at the event, visit their site. Click on Order Now. Choose pickup and the Frios Dallas location. After making your selections, and when you get to the Checkout page, make sure you enter Northwood in the coupon code section before paying. That will ensure they assign it to our event and have it available on October 3rd.
Cost: The live music and kids’ games are free! Bottled water will also be provided free of charge. If you’d like to purchase from the food trucks, please plan to bring money for that.
What Else to Bring:
- Chairs & Blankets – plan to bring your own camping chairs and blankets for seating as there won’t be tables and chairs available.
- Bug spray – yes, we’re still seeing mosquitos at this time of year, so expect them, especially if it rains in the days leading up to the event.
- Donations – A donation to North Texas Food Bank in the form of food or cash would be much appreciated. NHHA is covering the cost of the entertainment in hopes that you’ll support this worthy cause.
