The Tech Terrace Home Tour and Afterglow: Our Wintertime Beloved Traditions Live On!
Neighbors have always been more, well, neighborly here in Tech Terrace. Strolls along our tree-lined streets, stopping to say hello as you go; the morning and afternoon ritual of kids and their watchful parents making their way to and from our beloved Roscoe Wilson Elementary School; block parties and gatherings in the park for Halloween or The Fourth.
About ten years ago another neighborhood tradition was established: The Afterglow. The idea was to extend the fun of our annual Home Tour by holding a street party at our local shopping center at 26th and Boston. The name comes from the event being an after-party for the Home Tour, as well as from the fact that the main feature of this winter-themed carnival is open air fires, which are set up all along the venue space. Neighbors gather to warm their hands and help youngsters roast marshmallows, and the fire glow sets a lovely evening ambiance for mingling and sipping cider, or another type of belly-warming beverage!
Each year the event’s chairs put their own spin on the line-up of music, activities and food, but the common thread is always warmth: warm fires, warm fellowship, warm hearts.
After a detour for the pandemic, the old tradition of The Tech Terrace Home Tour, as well as the more recently established tradition of The Afterglow are both BACK! As always, they will both take place on the first Saturday of December.
