Richland Uptown Fall Happenings

With school having started up and summer starting to wind down (although you wouldn't know it based on the temperature!) it's just about time for some Halloween shenanigans in the Richland Uptown!

Each year on October 31st from around 3:00 to 5:00 p.m., the Uptown plays host to ghouls and ghosts of all sizes, as many businesses participate in the shopping center's annual "Trick or Treat" festivities.

In addition to the usual Halloween hijinks, some businesses like Adventures Underground have additional treats - in their case it's a mini "Free Comic Book Day", featuring several different Halloween themed comics that they'll be handing out.

Trick or Treating in the Uptown isn't the only event going on in the next few months, though. Our store - Sunken Treasures Games - will be hosting a few video game tournaments, the first of which is for Marvel vs. Capcom 2 on Saturday, October 26th! For more details, check out our website, or the Facebook event page: here!

And as per usual, restaurants like Ray's Golden Lion and The Emerald of Siam are set to have some excellent events planned, starting with Ray's Fright Fest on October 11th!

These events only represent a fraction of the fun stuffs set to take place in the Uptown throughout the latter portion of the year, so stay tuned to for more info!

Chalk Art Festival 2013

With the 2nd annual Richland Uptown Dog Walk behind us (thanks to everyone who made the event such a HUGE success!), it's time for us to move on to this year's Chalk Art Festival

If you are new to the event then allow me to explain! Upon registration each entrant is given a chalk set and a section of the Uptown's sidewalk as a canvas for their creative offering. The event is all ages, and later in the afternoon, there's even judging and prizes!

In addition, several businesses will more than likely be offering sales and discounts, so even if you're not participating it makes for a great opportunity to visit the Uptown, witness some fine art, and do a little shopping on the side! ^_^

This year's Chalk Art Festival is scheduled to run from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 8th. Feel free to pick up a pre-registration form at one of the following businesses: Aunt Franny's Toys, Amber Rose Consignment, Octopus' Garden, or Sunken Treasures Games.
