Spring Fling Event At The Edison Mall – March 12th

Edison Mall welcomes spring in a family friendly community event featuring

  • Arts and Crafts
  • Food Trucks
  • Eco Friendly Activities
  • Artistic Performances
  • Tantalizing treats for the ears, eyes and mouth
  • Selfie Stations and Memory Makers
  • KidX activity
  • Pop Up Shops
  • and so much more!

March 12th, from 12 – 4 PM, we will be hosting our Spring Fling event, which would essentially be an arts and crafts festival with artistic performances, food trucks, vendors, and more. Within that arts & crafts sector, we will be hosting an art contest for children, divided by age groups (6-10, 11-14, and 15-18). The winners of their respective groups would then be able to contribute to the mall’s Canvas Project, which is a campaign where artists paint large canvases, that are then displayed around the mall long-term beside their biography. This would truly be an exceptional chance for young artists to further ignite their passion, gain significant visibility, and most importantly draw confidence as they embark on future projects- which is ultimately why we do what we do- to motivate those after us.   In addition, we are gathering donations for our community partners.

Help support our community partners in one of four ways:

Please visit our Eventbrite page for more info.

  1. Please donate canned goods and non perishables to help support our local American Legion Post 38 and help veterans in need.
  2. Please donate old towels, blankets, dog or cat food to help support the Gulf Coast Humane Society.
  3. Please donate new or gently used books to help support Believe N Books who bring books to our underserved communities and schools.
  4. Sign up to be a volunteer with Quality Life Center and help mentor our youth to become the best they can be.
