Come ride a tethered hot air balloon near 4th Avenue and University Blvd. on the afternoon of Sunday October 25.
West University Neighborhood Association and the Trinity Presbyterian Church, along with several other sponsors and neighborhood associations (including mine) are teaming up to host a community event for families and neighbors. I’ve been on the steering committee helping pull this event together for several months. Info: 520-623-2579.
The eight co-sponsoring neighborhood associations are: Barrio Anita, Blenman-Elm, Catalina Vista, Dunbar Springs, Feldman’s, Pie Allen, Sam Hughes, and West University.
These are neighborhoods from downtown to east of the U of A.
Calling itself Neighborfest 2009, this second annual festival will feature free trolley rides, community booths, food, free music, activities for children, a rock climbing wall and jumping castles, and the BIG draw, that aforementioned hot air balloon ride. It’ll be first come, first ride to get tickets for the balloon, so don’t delay, weather permitting of course for the balloon.
Information booths will be available on community resources and volunteer activities.
1pm: Chronically Gone (smooth listening)
2 pm: Ice 9 (folk music)
2:30 pm: University of Arizona Pep Band
3 pm: In Accent (Guitars and vocal harmonies)
Neighborfest’s goal is “to build community among the residents within and among the neighborhoods around the University of Arizona, Pima (Downtown Campus), Fourth Avenue and Downtown.” It will be from 1 to 4:30 p.m. in the parking lot of the Trinity Presbyterian Church on University Blvd., west of Time Market, east of 4th Avenue.
Come one, come all.
