Friends, since this blog is relatively new, it’s stil “shaping up” in terms of its content. So far I’ve had a variety of different posts. One of the things I anticipate using this blog for is to get the news out to some local networks about projects/activities that may be of interest to people who live here in San Antonio. I know a fair number of readers are not local, so I’m going to put “LOCAL” in the post title so y’all can feel free to skip those local things!
I’m thrilled that my first local post is about the Fabulous Family Fun Festival on July 4th happening here at Northwood Presbyterian Church. This festival is Northwood’s opportunity to join in on the local neighborhood parade that is already happening. Here’s what you can expect:
- Food (of course!): Totally Shredded food truck will be here along with the Saweet Cupcake Truck, and Lone Star Hot Dogs. Let’s support these vendors!
- Artisan Market: Crafters like Sew Embellished will be selling artisan goods
- Fair Trade Market: Northwood Presbyterian Church is hosting an alternative gift market with a TON of amazing fair trade goods for purchase. These goods are from Serrv, Rahab’s Rope, and Colores del Pueblo . Check out some of the pictures of the Serrv goods HERE. Credit and Debit cards are accepted at the Fair Trade market!
- Games for Children: We’re going to have a mini-ball pit for toddlers, a bouncy house, a duck pond, fishing game, bean bag toss and more. These games have prizes! (Games and bounce house are FREE!)
- VBS Registration
The Festival funs from 9 am – 1 pm (but Saweet Cupcakes will be here at 8 for all you early morning helpers… early sugar rush!)
Plan to be there, and to bring friends and neighbors. Please share this post! All are invited!
