Friday don’t be surprised if you see a long line of cars snaking through your neighborhood. It’s just local teachers and staff saying goodbye for now to their students.
From Westover Hills Elementary:
Teachers and staff are going to PARADE all through our school’s zone tomorrow morning to say “Hi” and “Goodbye” 😢 to students at their homes from the responsible distance of their cars. They expect to be in our neighborhoods from about 9:20-11:00 AM. If you are home (like you should be!), step out on the porch and give a wave and a “thank you” (and don’t freak out if you see a whole bunch of cars driving slowly through the neighborhood in a long line)”.

Little Nickel and Crossroads “Should” Reopen Next Week
Not back to normal but a step in that direction.
Two neighborhood favorites are set to come out of Covid-19 hibernation.
Little Nickel made this announcement on Facebook along with the slick looking deck addition you see above.
we’re almost back and this time with a bit of outdoor seating! ~ we’ll be making an announcement on monday about our opening date ~ we’ve missed everyone and can’t wait to reopen our tropical paradise safely, thank you so much for your support throughout this process ~
A little birdie told me that the announcement on Monday will be a Wednesday opening. Little birdies are known to be wrong but I trust this one.
Crossroads is not as precise. They’re planning for mid-July. Work is going on to complete a couple projects. Once those wrap up they’ll be pivoting to take out only for a bit.
Next week is mid-July so I’m hopeful that our favorite little coffee shop will be back in action.
Carytown Watermelon Festival Officially Canceled for this Year
The yearly event that brought crowds and piles of watermelon to Carytown is canceled this year due to Covid-19.
Hello Watermelon Lovers! It is with tremendous sadness that we are writing today that the 37th Carytown Watermelon Festival is being postponed. Local and State Covid-19 regulations in our current Phase of re-opening are limiting any open-air events to a maximum of 250 people. Obviously, this event is much larger than that. In addition, it will always be our first priority to ensure the safety of our guests, vendors, sponsors and Carytown merchants. Although this decision is a difficult one, it is in all our best interest to remain healthy, safe and cognizant of those around us who may be affected by having such a festival. If a fall option becomes available to us, we will post accordingly. Thanks for your 37 years of support and we truly look forward to the next Carytown event.
**Please note that pages and events titled Carytown Watermelon Festival 2020 (that 2020 is the key word) keep popping up. We have tried to get this removed, these are SCAM pages and events, please do not share or add yourself as a co-host**
