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!

Uptown Village’s Back-To-School Kid’s Fest & Concert

17 Aug

It’s that time of year again! Time to find new backpacks, lunchbags, wide ruled paper and take advantage of the annual Tax Free weekend! In Cedar Hill, it’s time to celebrate Uptown Village’s first ever Back-To-School Kid’s Fest & Concert August 20th! It’s still pretty hot outside in Texas so this Back-To-School Fest will only last about 4 hours. Throughout the entire Saturday event Two-Wins Foundation will be accepting $25 donations to help provide local underprivileged children with school supplies.

Expect exciting Drumline performances

During the first two hours (4-6pm) of Back-to-School KID’S FEST Stacia’s School of Dance, the Duncanville Cheerleaders and DeSoto High School’s Drill Team will give dance performances. Attendees will also get the opportunity to meet the 2011 Cedar Hill High School football team.

Meet this year's CHHS Fball team

Face painting, balloon art, bounce houses, crafts and other fun activities will keep attendees engaged.

The Back-to-School Concert will take place from 6:00 – 8:00pm. The concert will feature local party and dance band Top with drumline performances during intermission. Between JAM to Give, Wine Walks, Family Movie Nights and great shopping, Uptown Village is quickly becoming the place to go! Now as the summer comes to an end, the Village Green events don’t stop. Support Two-Wins Foundation August 20th as we come together to make the schoolyear a little better for those who have less than what’s needed.

Donations will go towards school supplies for local underprivileged students

So as some of us gear up for school again let the rhythms of Soul II Soul get you back in the mode of homework, sack lunches & good ole’ PTA meetings!

Back to Life…Back to Reality…

Stroll and Sample at the July Wine Walk at Cedar Hill Uptown Village

27 Jul

Uptown Village in Cedar Hill hosts a Free Wine Walk on the last Thursday of each month. If you consider yourself a wine connoisseur then you can appreciate the sips you’ll receive, but if you’re just looking for something to do that gets you a few free treats too then you will also like this event. Usually they require you to RSVP in order to participate but you don’t HAVE to; it’s just encouraged. This month the Wine Walk will take place on July 28th.

Expect live music, special store promotions, food samples, and fun! Pick up your tickets and a bag of goodies with a map laying out all of the participating retailers and restaurants where you can enjoy sales, promotions, samples and wine. It gives you the chance to do a little exercise as well as you circle the Village Green and peek into each store to see what they have to offer. It’s a three hour event happening from 6:00pm – 9:00pm in the evening so you’ll have time to get there after work. Of course you also need to be at least 21 to participate in the Wine Walk. You can e-mail GuestServicesCH@herringgroup.com to make your reservations. Uptown Village is growing more and more each season. They recently added a Black-eyed Peas, taking the spot of the former Petaluma Café. If either of these eateries are open this month, try a taste of Italia Express and Max n’ Cheese. Patrizio’s and Which Wich are also favorites but no guarantee that they’re participating in the event. Get outta the house and into “Sample n’ Sip Stroll”.

Uptown Village is located off of Highway 67 and Pleasant Run.
You can also enter from 1382/Belt Line Road.

JAM to Give | Braxton Family Values

15 Jul

The 8-week concert series of Cedar Hill Uptown Village continues this week as DFW saxophonist Tom Braxton returns to the stage. Last year he filled the Village Green with smooth jazzy sax sounds that had the crowd dancing and tapping their heels, and this year will be no different. Believe it or not, he taught my brother to play the saxophone when we were younger, so I know he’s a talented musician! With his new album, Endless Highway, now available in stores, Braxton instills those family values by giving to a charitable cause through his music. As it may not be the same exact values as Toni Braxton and her sisters, Tom Braxton (no relation to the VH1 reality stars) has managed to make a name for himself across the U.S. and most importantly the DFW Metroplex. By supporting the local non-profit Hope Mansion, Braxton can help you support a worthy cause and cool off at the end of the week with some quality live music.

Dallas Saxophonist Tom Braxon plays July 15

Found just last November, the Hope Mansion is a faith-based community partnership organization aimed at providing a support system for women in crisis with unplanned/unwanted pregnancies. Located right in Cedar Hill, Hope Mansion provides women support facilities for women in the metroplex should they choose to keep their child or place them up for adoption with limited availability in the entire metroplex as Elizabeth Homes and Grace Home were both recently closed. You can be a part of supporting the non-profit’s mission of practical support for mothers’ and their babies during a time of crisis by bringing toiletry items to Friday’s evening concert (July 15). Whether it’s toothbrushes, deodorant, soap, lotion, whatever, help make a difference in someone else’s life by providing just a small simple contribution. We, as a community, can make a difference and JAM to Give helps us do just that on a weekly basis. Join us at the Village Green once again for a live saxophone performance by one of Dallas’ best jazz musicians and support this concert for a cause that benefits the Hope Mansion.

The concert will be from 7-9pm so you have a little time to change and unwind after work. The kids can bring their swimsuits and beat the heat playing at the fountain in the meantime. This is the second to last concert of the Summer hosted by Uptown Village so catch it before July 22nd comes!
