The Hillcrest PTA will offer activities, food, and entertainment for the whole family including: game booths; prizes; face painting; giant slide; inflatable obstacle course; splash booth; caricature artists; and, photo booths. Shoppers can purchase books at the Scholastics book sale or browse the vendor boutiques.
Enjoy a BBQ lunch provided by Village Market, sip an espresso or Jamba Juice, maybe even get a chair massage. D.J. Afrique will keep everyone moving with his tunes as well as live performances by several Hillcrest student rock bands.
At this year's event nearly 300 Hillcrest students will be walking a 1/4-mile course around campus to raise much-needed funds for their Oakland public K-8 school. Come cheer them on!!
