The Springs Festival: Time to Celebrate!
“The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.”
Alan Watts, British philosopher, writer, and speaker
The history of The Springs in one of change and reinvention. Each of the four hamlets that encompass this special area has a fascinating history of its own and collectively, the region has faced great challenges – from economic to natural to social. For the past couple of years, the Springs has been undergoing yet another reinvention. We are beginning again and the future of the Springs is one we will decide together. So, let’s celebrate where we are today and think about where we want to go tomorrow.
On Saturday, September 10th, we will hold first ever The Springs Festival. Bring your family and friends to mark the completion of improvements on Highway 12, the small businesses investing in the community, the nonprofit organizations who provide services and support, and the residents who continue to believe in this special place.
The day will kick off with a ribbon cutting at 12:00 pm at Boyes Plaza Center, followed by a walk on the newly installed Highway 12 sidewalks through Flowery School Field, and will finish with a community-wide celebration at Larson Park from 1:00-5:00 pm. Have you ever biked or walked the Springs? Now is the time to experience it on foot or bike! Access to Larson Park is easy through the backfield of Flowery or along DeChene, but please do not fill the neighborhood with vehicles (parking is very limited). We have Bike Valet parking and loads of fun activities awaiting you, from a Dunk Tank (with many well-known eager “Dunkees”) to watermelon eating contests to sack races to food vendors and much, much more.
