Spring Bash: A Night of Community

Springing into a Year of Building Community Relationships

“Spring Bash was a total success, seeing everyone come out to the park to have fun and celebrate the Spring season is just so gratifying to see” said Local Programming and Special Events Manager Jessica Mahaffey. Spring Bash is the first community event of the 2024 season, took place on March 29th. During the event kids participated in an Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt around the park and an egg toss game. While the kids were enjoying the scavenger hunt, parents got to vote on their favorite car or truck during a car show, visited different vendors or one of the six food trucks that will be onsite. The event drew in around 600-700 attendees that participated in the festivities.

The car show gave away two prize plaques, people’s choice for the best car and people’s choice for the best truck. The winner of the best car was awarded to Darrell Sanderson for his 1966 Fastback Shelby Clone Mustang. The winner of the best truck was awarded to Linda for her 1966 two door Ford F-100.

“Anytime you can have a great family-friendly event for the community is wonderful. The staff at Bill Noble Park put on a great event. I was talking to some community members that attended the event and they absolutely loved it. I am looking forward to our next community event- Summer Block Party” said General Manager at Bill Noble Park, Jesse Newsom.

While instilling community values with not only hosting the event but even down to the decorations for the entire event. Bill Noble Park hosted its first round of Kids Art Class where local kids got to help make decorations for the event. These artists got to help paint different items, make yearn chandeliers, and different art display made of paper. “If I had to pick one thing from Spring Bash that was my favorite, it was seeing our honorary Bill Noble Artists. Seeing them wear their Honorary Bill Noble Artist Buttons and witnessing the joy of their art in action is worth all the hard work and long nights. It just shows you that our park is so much more than just sports, it’s a safe space for kids to come out and try new things and build lifelong relationships” said Mahaffey.

Now the Bill Noble staff are gearing up for their next big community event-Summer Block Party. The event will embody everything about summer that kids love; chalk, bubbles, water balloons, train rides, and more! Summer Block Party will be happening on June 27th from 5pm to 9pm. With the success of the Spring Bash, the Summer Block Party is sure to be an event you do not want to miss.

“Bill Noble Park is based on community and hosting these types of events give us a chance to interact with our local community that might not be involved in one of our sports programs” said Caeley Guthrie, Marketing & Customer Relations Manager.
