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!

Cedar Hill Walk the Light Art Festival

25 Jul

When was the last time you got excited about walking through the street light? I believe mine all came after seeing this…


(Anybody remember this? It was the moment all us 80s-born Sesame Street watching kids found a new way to walk..myself included) Well you’ll get another chance this Saturday night. Cedar Hill hosts the Walk the Light Art Festival July 30th from 4-10pm in their historic downtown. It’s not far from 1382, right around the corner from the Cinemark Theatre and only a minute drive from Uptown Village.

If you’re a fan of art don’t miss this Free outdoor event displaying all art genres. Artists will display or perform their craft around in Pioneer Park, inside downtown Cedar Hill businesses and on the streets as Walk the Light Arts Festival paints the town all sorts of colors. If you’re an artist yourself and interested in participating, visit www.walkthelight.org to register. Walk the Light is devoted to celebrating artists and art of all forms by providing a unique venue for it to be enjoyed, and what better place than out in the street? Cedar Hill may not be the first place that comes to mind when you think of looking at artwork but they just might change your mind this weekend once you’ve stepped into the outdoor gallery they’ve created. All you newbies to the art world can use this opportunity to expose yourself to the different forms of art and participate in the creative process through various performances, exhibits and art installations. Again, it’s Saturday 7/30 and Admission is Free! So what do you have to lose? Especially if you don’t have any other plans. Add a splash of color to your weekend and try something a little different.

This little piggy went to the Walk the Light Art Festival. That little piggy stayed home. This little piggy was glad she went, while the other got closer to becoming labeled a “bore”. (yeah, definitely not the wild kind)
