HILLCREST, WHEN AUTUMN LEAVES START TO FALL
Fall is upon us and as Hillcrest slips into a cape of rust and gold, activities have moved into high gear. There are football games at War Memorial Stadium that flood the neighborhood with high school and college tailgaters. Cooler days and pleasant evenings bring out the walkers, bikers and joggers to take advantage of the parks and tree lined streets.
Residents and visitors know how to spark their personal look with a stop at one of the salons or shops throughout the neighborhood. Houses become homier with new decorator items to add a cozy feel for fall. A bottle of wine, some cheese, fresh bread and designer chocolates from a shop or restaurant make for a great start to a picnic in one of the parks. Make your appointments now at our local healthcare clinics to beat the end of year rush and to ensure you are feeling your best heading into the holiday season. Are you downsizing or upgrading? The Hillcrest banks and realtors can make your dreams a reality. Go to the individual merchants listings on this site to find more information.
The big event is HarvestFest. Sponsored by the Hillcrest Merchants Association, it will be celebrated on Saturday Sept 21 beginning with a bird spotting walk through Allsopp Park, the Hillcrest Residents Association Pancake Breakfast, then on to the kids’ fun with pumpkin decorating and other action at the east end of Kavanaugh. Over 130 vendors will line the streets with a Cheese Dip contest and Corvette show in the middle. We’ll be doing our bit for the environment too. There will be collection sites for document shredding and electronics recycling. As the evening comes on, the bands will hit the 2 stages, breaking only for the 2013 Fall Fashion Show. Nighttime proceeds go toward our local charities, Centers for Youth and Families and the Francis Allen School. Check Harvestfest.us for details.
The schools and churches of Hillcrest are bustling with their own fall activities. Of special note is the annual Hillcrest Community Thanksgiving Service which will be held this year on Tuesday evening November 26. This event is open to all.
So come to Hillcrest this autumn. We’d love to have you for the day or to stay!
