Citizens Bank of Edmond’s Heard on Hurd will return Saturday, October 19th, at the corner of Broadway and Hurd in downtown Edmond, from 6-10 p.m. for the last event of the 2019 season.
“One of the most unique aspects of Heard on Hurd is that it is ran one hundred percent by our employees and their families volunteer efforts”. Said Citizens Bank of Edmond’s President & CEO and Heard on Hurd creator, Jill Castilla. “It’s hard to believe the 6th season is coming to an end. Each and every year our local street festival steadily grows and that would not be possible without the support of our community, food vendors, retail vendors, nonprofit organizations, Edmond Police and Fire Departments, and the city of Edmond”.
The featured nonprofit for the event will be the American Energy Swim Club. This organization was founded in May of 1965 and originally known as the Oklahoma City Swim Club. The organization’s mission is to empower athletes to reach their full potential in and out of the water through a nationally recognized aquatics program that teaches and trains all levels of swimmers, emphasizing character development, team unity, and family.
Many fan favorite food trucks will be lining the streets to help close out the season, including, Wicked Hangry, Oak City Pizza Co., C’est Si Bon, Klemm’s Smoke Haus, El Reno Onion Burgers, Big O’s Pork and Dreams, Mighty Corndog, The Flying Pig, Metro Mini’s, Let’s Do Greek, Chef Ray’s Street Eats, Big Biang Theory, Rolling Café, Oh My Gogi, Kona Ice, Snow S’more, Nick’s Tamales, Chestand’s Family BBQ, The Chosen Juan, Sizzle N Spice, Kettle Popstars, Whole Latte Pie, Cookie Dough to Go, Scars and Stripes Coffee, Mob Grill, Saucee Sicilian, Taste of Soul, and more.
