Trends With Tricia: Texas: Highland Village

Castlewood 4th of July Parade Was a Blast!

I am not sure if it's because my daughter knows more kids from the neighborhood, or that I know the HOA president, or just that it's about that time, but my family and I have attended several of the community-sponsored events at Castlewood in Highland Village, TX.

It's nice that our dues go to not only great facilities, but excellent staff and volunteer community members who help plan special events like today's 4th of July parade.  We have never done this before but we will definitely be participating in years to come.  

The parade started with red, white and blue donuts and bananas cut in half with patriotic sprinkles (what a great idea!). There was construction paper and crayons for everyone to write cards to our troops serving our country, tattoos and flags.

Outside, you could pimp your ride (mostly wagons and bikes) with an assortment of flags, bunting and other prideful decor. After the Barbie cars and scooters were decorated, it was time for the parade!  It was great to see a few neighbors with their chairs on their driveway cheering the participants on.  My husband commented he wished he had some candy to throw out.  Next year!

After returning to the clubhouse, there was a watermelon spitting contest.  I am the extremely proud mother of the 7 and under champion!

Trinity's the champ!

What better way to start our 4th of July and what better way to honor our country and be involved in our community!
