Exciting Events This Autumn
We are excited to celebrate a well deserved Labor Day on September 3, 2018. Get the children ready for the new school year, say farewell to summer, and look forward to the autumn months ahead.
We are also excited to welcome this year’s Mission Hills BID Associate Members: Fausto, Toni, and Tiger Palafox of Mission Hills Nursery, located at 1525 Ft. Stockton Drive; Cristin Smith of Saffron & Sage, located at 2555 State Street; and, Jaimee Brant of Paint Box Art Studio, located at 1101 Washington Place. The BID is always looking for ways to engage business owners in Mission Hills, whose businesses may not fall within the City’s established BID boundaries, as we all benefit from them being very near. It is an honor to welcome each of these businesses and their business owners as FY19 Mission Hills BID Associate Members. For more information on associate memberships, visit MissionHillsBID.com/membership/.
Look up. Look around. Have you noticed colorful banners flying on lampposts throughout Mission Hills? Yes, it’s that time of year again. The 7th Annual Taste of Mission Hills will take place from 5 to 9 p.m., Wednesday, October 10, 2018. It is the Mission Hills Business Improvement District’s annual fundraiser. US Bank, Mission Hills’ branch at 610 West Washington Street, is this year’s Title Sponsor. It is because of their generous donation of $7,500 that we are able to grow the event while maintaining our very affordable ticket prices.
Event night live music by Sue Palmer and the Motel Swing Singers is sponsored by Mission Hills BID board President Krista Lombardi of Scott and Quinn Real Estate, 1111 Ft. Stockton Drive. Look and listen for this favorite boogie-woogie band performing under the Mission Hills sign.
Three new “taste” venues and three trolley buses covering the more than five mile “taste” route from Fort Stockton Drive to Goldfinch Street and West Washington Street, and onto Reynard Way and India Street, promise to make this year’s Taste of Mission Hills the best ever. Again this year, tickets to the 7th Annual Taste of Mission Hills include free Old Town Trolley “taste” shuttles providing service to within steps of all participating taste venues.
The shuttle service is provided, thanks to the generous sponsorships of Colleen Field, owner agent at Allstate Insurance Mission Hills, 930 West Washington Street, #10; John Ealy owner of Harley Gray Kitchen and Bar, 901 West Washington Street; and Brad Wise and Steven Schwob owners of Trust Restaurant Group and Fort Oak, 1011 Fort Stockton Drive.
We are excited to announce twenty-five venues are participating in this year’s “taste”. The names, and addresses for each participating venue are listed on posters displayed in Mission Hills’ shops. Advance purchase tickets are $25 each. Day of ticket purchase is $30. Only 500 tickets will be sold, so buy your tickets early. Will call, for same day purchases and reserved ticket pick up, will be located at Lazy Acres, this year’s Good Neighbor Sponsor.
Advance purchase tickets are being sold at four locations, including US Bank, Mission Hills Branch at 610 West Washington Street; One Mission Realty, 928 Ft. Stockton Drive, suite 217; at Patio Express Community Market, 928 Ft. Stockton Drive, suite 101; and at Mission Nails and Spa, 928 Ft. Stockton Drive, suite 115.

The BID is grateful for the generosity of this year’s twenty-five venue participants offering “tastes” and to the generous sponsors who support our mission to promote Mission Hills’ neighborhood of businesses.
