A Busy Holiday Weekend in Huntersville

Huntersville Connection participants should be very proud:  ‘Tis a busy weekend for our entities and the Fall Into Huntersville three-month marketing campaign is off to a robust beginning!

Tomorrow at 10 a.m. in Huntersville’s Town Center, over 35 area businesses and non-profits will participate in the Fall Into Huntersville kick-off festival. Complete with food vendors, pony rides, a moon bounce and more, this event showcases area businesses in a dynamic forum. The Fall Into Huntersville committee of volunteers has been actively at work planning this event and generating sponsorships for the three-month marketing campaign (that brags about all Huntersville has to offer during the autumn season!). Please plan on attending tomorrow’s event — from 10 until 2 — and also check out the Fall Into Huntersville website of activities, business listings and special deals through November: http://www.fallintohuntersville.com.

The Amazing Maize Maze at Rural Hill will also begin tomorrow and this is proof, yet again, that people can have a full day of family activity and never leave town! The Maze this year has an athletic theme, which is no less challenging than previous years. During the Fellowship Challenge this past week — the media event where groups race through the maze to win money for charities — Huntersville’s Parks and Rec Department team made it through the maze in 28 minutes. But don’t let that be your guide — the second and third place teams came in over a half hour after that!  Allow several hours just to experience the natural setting, read the “kernels of knowledge” in the maze and walk around the property once you get out. IF you get out (just kidding!). For more details, check out http://www.ruralhill.net or call 704-875-3113.

One of Huntersville’s quieter gems is the Levine & Dickson Hospice House, which will be sponsoring a “Pedal in the Park” event on Monday. The bike ride is segmented into 30 and 60 miles routes that meander through surrounding counties and planners have made sure that the routes are marked well and cyclists will have access to food and water. There will also be a 3-mile fun ride around The Park. All proceeds will of course go to the Levine & Dickson Hospice House; participation costs range from ten dollars to $33. If you are interested, please call 704-375-0100.

There’s more going on in the area and FallIntoHuntersville.com will have details. If you have anything to add, please, comment below. And, don’t forget to “Like” the Huntersville Connection Facebook page to be able to list your events or send out requests!

Happy Labor Day Weekend, Everyone!
