Uptown Village’s Fall Fest & Trunk-or-Treat

9 Oct

Uptown Village keeps the party “live” in Cedar Hill! There’s never a month that passes without some exciting event for Village shoppers/visitors. This month the “Fall Fest and Trunk or Treat” will be taking place on Halloween weekend, October 29th. The Village Green will be a pumpkin patch where different activities will occur, while Trunk or Treat will be behind the new Black-eyed Peas restaurant in their parking lot. What’s October without a great Fall Festival? Incomplete. Slap on some costumes and load up the kiddos (and doggies) for face painting, balloon art, pumpkin decorating, seed spitting, a pie eating contest as well as a Dog Costume contest! (Uptown Village has a thing for pups) Fall Fest & Trunk or Treat begins at 5pm on Saturday and lasts until 9pm.

The Village Green transforms into a Pumpkin Patch

It’s a great safe alternative for going trick-or-treating door-to-door, especially the Trunk or Treat which is brought by Midlothian Classic Wheels. They’ll have the scariest yet coolest looking cars over in the Black-eyed Peas parking lot fully equipped with treats! (If you don’t trust the neighbors might as well go for the trunks of some old classic cars right? lol KIDDING…It’s safe.) All the Village Green activities mentioned above will go from 5 to 7pm, and the Trunk or Treat is from 6 to 9pm.

Bring a camera if you like as the Village Green will be decorated just right for some great family shots and fall photos of the tiny tots with the pumpkins. Don’t get uneasy about suspect trick-or-treating plans. Just make a night of it over at Uptown Village’s Fall Fest & Trunk or Treat Saturday, October 29th!
