Hackberry Creek Home Owner’s Association (HOA) connected neighborhood residents with more than 30 local businesses in a refreshing environment with a strong focus on community building at its annual Taste of Hackberry festival. Held on Bradford Pear Dr. April 27, the celebration boasted roughly 2,000 attendees, making it the largest event hosted by the HOA each year.
HOA board member, Joyce Schneider, stressed that beneath the fun, laid-back surface, Taste of Hackberry attempts to weld the neighborhood into a cohesive community.
“We have a very diverse neighborhood of various cultures,” Schneider said. “We have everything from young marrieds to senior citizens, so it’s just a good event to see each other [who] maybe don’t cross your path in your normal, everyday life.”
