This week marks the first few days back at school, which means our vendors have piles of fresh produce and great snacks to pack for lunches. Try your hand this year at packing some of our wonderful ethnic foods in your child's lunch: Our vendors have something that will appeal to all ages, we promise! Toss in a few fresh carrot sticks and a crispy apple, and your child's back-to-school lunch will be the envy of all her friends- no processed fruit snacks required!
Our friends from Oak Hills Community League will be back in the Community Tent this week, promoting their Party on the Hill event on September 13, as well as selling community league memberships.
