This Saturday is the Oakland Mills Fall Festival. This year we are celebrating the 50th Birthday Of our Village. Throughout the years it has been an international festival and a cultural arts festival but, whatever the name, it has been an annual source of community fun. There will be live music, food, vendors, kids’ activities, and the whole thing will kick off with a performance by the Oakland Mills High School Band.
There’s a lot going on in Oakland Mills right now. Have you taken a walk across the newly updated pedestrian bridge that connects us to Downtown? Or have you explored the most recent updates to Blandair Park? I’m guessing that you’ll be popping into my neighborhood more frequently once the new international market opens up. I know I’ll be bumping in to you once the Dunkin Donuts opens up...
A special shoutout to Sandy Cederbaum, our Village Manager, and Brigitta Warren (special events coordinator) for all the work they put into the Festival every year. Many thanks, too, to OMCA Village Board Chair Jonathan Edelson and the entire board for everything they do to foster a vibrant and welcoming community in Oakland Mills.
I hope I’ll see you this weekend. The fun starts at 11 am.
