Join the party 10 a.m. -2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 1 at Hillside Village.

Hillside Village is so happening these days, so it’s no surprise they are inviting the neighborhood to a daytime shindig …

There is plenty to keep you busy this weekend, but if you can squeeze it in, here’s a last-minute suggestion:

Saturday, head over to Hillside Village (home to T. Hee Greetings and Fuzzy’s), NE corner of Mockingbird and Abrams, for the Fall Festival from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Meet lots of local groups and organizations, sign up for giveaways, get your face painted, put your kids in a bounce house and possibly adopt a pet. It’s a fun opportunity to check out this burgeoning shopping center.
