Hillcrest Merchants Association’s annual Fourth of July ice cream social promises surprise treats and an evening of free family fun! The merchants are doubling the fun by teaming their monthly First Thursday Shop ‘n’ Sip event with their annual old-fashioned ice cream social at 6 p.m. Thursday in Crest Park (between the Canon Grill and the Aspire Real Estate Group building).
Aspire Real Estate Group will supply Coleman Dairy ice cream. Simmons Bank will have balloons to give to children. And merchants will have popcorn, homemade cookies, lemonade and water. The Quapaw Brass Quintet will provide the patriotic-inspired entertainment.
Consisting of shops, restaurants and spas, the Hillcrest Merchants Association is a group of 110 small businesses located in historic Hillcrest. Committed to community service and boosting Hillcrest livelihood both commercially and residentially, many merchants sell locally-made products and local artisans are promoted throughout the businesses.
