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!
