Thanks to All Who Attended, Supported the Hullabaloo

After a two-year, Covid-induced hiatus, the HPCC was excited to bring back our neighborhood BBQ under a new name: “The Highland Park Hullabaloo.” On June 23rd, we converted the Rhododendron Shelter in the park to a community party zone! Over 400 people came to wind down after work with free hot dogs, a hot dog toppings bar, hot popcorn, Eat’n Park Smiley cookies, and beer and soda tasting – seven kinds of each! Rikki the Face Painter was there, along with the Pittsburgh Glass Center and Vinnie’s Shaved Ice. People enjoyed live music, won cool door prizes, and chilled on the grass with their friends and neighbors. A good time was had by all. Check out our Facebook page for more photos!

Thank you to everyone who made it possible, including the entire HPCC board; Janine Jelks-Seale and Leah Bhagat-Young (neighborhood volunteers on the planning committee); Elisa Lucke Jones (children’s committee); the many businesses, organizations and individuals that donated door prizes; and all of the neighborhood volunteers who helped set-up, run and clean-up after the event. Events like this are a team effort – thank you Team Hullabaloo!
