Screamin’ Good Time at Bonsall Family Sundowner
Hosted by Lilac Hills Ranch
—Lilac Hills Ranch Release, November 1, 2012
Fun! This was the word all of the children used to describe the first family friendly Pumpkin Party Sundowner for the Bonsall Chamber of Commerce hosted by Lilac Hills Ranch at the Zosa Estate.
“There were so many decorations, starting with the fake grave yard that leads you to the pavilion with hundreds of other themed decorations throughout the venue,” said Gail Martin, President Elect, Bonsall Chamber of Commerce. “The Pumpkin Party with the children for the Bonsall Chamber of Commerce was the first of its kind. We teamed up with the Bonsall Rotary President, Cassandra Costa, who hosted the event for Lilac Hills Ranch. Cassandra pulled the event together and made it a very special evening featuring many family friendly activities like, cupcake and pumpkin decorating and a piñata for the kids. I hope we see this event annually,” said Martin.
Cassandra Costa, who is also the Lilac Hills Ranch Assistant Project Manager, said, “This event focused on families and successfully created the first ever kid-friendly sundowner in Bonsall.” She went on to explain that this event and others like it will be a part of the proposed Lilac Hills Ranch community. The community is designed with over 20 acres of parks and over 17 miles of trails connecting each home to the small-town square, main street and other gathering centers to give neighbors an opportunity to connect with neighbors.
Kids had a wonderful time at the pumpkin painting station, the cupcake design station and the scary buffet, which was brought to life through donations from Penny Clark, Interim Executive Administrator for the Bonsall Chamber of Commerce. “I am glad the decorations are going to a good cause,” said Penny, who has made, collected and stored the decorations for over 6 years and was happy to see one of her favorite holidays come to life at the event. When asked her favorite decoration she found it hard to choose: the eye balls, ears or finger she made herself or the fortune teller, ghost or skeleton in the cage shaking the bars screaming, “I want out.”
Lilac Hills Ranch is located minutes from the Interstate 15 and Old Highway 395 exit. The County of San Diego is currently reviewing the application for a proposed mixed-use sustainable community with amenities that include shopping, office space, restaurants, a grocery store, a K-8 school, a community center, a country inn, banquet facilities, a senior center, a private recreation facility, ball fields, parks, trails and natural openspace.
