How We Said Goodbye to Summer!

Around 400 members of the Fayetteville community gathered to say goodbye to summer and hello to the new school year at our block party last weekend! We had a blast with everyone – from eating delicious free food from Which Wich and Mikoto Japanese Express, to visiting the complimentary face painting booth and playing outdoor games from Gander Mountain. 

Here’s a recap of some of the fun activities that went on and were made possible by our Marketfair shopping center stores: 

  • The Rocket Fizz soda tasting station and bottle ring toss game were definitely crowd favorites! The candy and soda pop shop also raffled off gift baskets and gift cards to a few lucky winners.
  • DJ Tommy King kept the party going with his fun mix of tunes!
  • Sports lovers enjoyed our interactive football and volleyball toss station provided by our newest tenant, Kids in Sports! Some raffle prize winners also went home with backpacks and gift cards!
  • Many guests left with other raffle prize winnings like free movie tickets to Carmike, gift cards, backpacks, a tablet from H.H. Gregg and free one-year memberships to Planet Fitness.

Thanks to everyone who came out and made this year’s Back-to-School Block Party a huge success! We are so grateful for everyone’s support – together we raised hundreds of dollars for our charity partner the Cumberland County District PTA Council, and we’ll also be donating another $1,000 on behalf of Marketfair. Here’s to a great 2016-2017 school year!

Everybody loves a good sequel; it rekindles that flame between you and the characters you’ve grown to know and love. Although 2015 is more than halfway over, two of the year’s most anticipated sequels have yet to be released.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2

Fans of this book-to-movie series aren’t just hungry, they’re starving for the final installment of the epic trilogy. The trailer gives us a sneak peek of heroine Katniss Everdeen, played by Jennifer Lawrence, and her final conquest against the evil President Snow.

The movie will hit theaters Nov. 20.

And the Oscar goes to…

Oscars image

An astounding 36.6 million people tuned into the 86th annual Academy Awards Sunday to celebrate this year’s most talked about movies, actors, composers and filmmakers.

In case you missed it, the big Oscar winners of the night were, predictably, “Birdman,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel” and “Whiplash.” Unfortunately Neil Patrick Harris’ hosting skills received less-than-stellar reviews, with some even referring to his performance as cringe-worthy. On the other hand, “Boyhood’s” Patricia Arquette and “Whiplash’s” Graham Moore stole the show with powerful acceptance speeches that drew attention to important social issues – both getting standing ovations from the crowd.

You can still catch some of the winners and nominees in theatres – come over to Carmike at Marketfair to see some of them, such as American Sniper and Still Alice. Happy watching!
