2013 SOUTH HILL FESTIVAL RECAP

On May 25th, 2013, the South Hill BIA hosted a food fair as the 11th annual South Hill Festival returned to Fraser Street. Thankfully the weather stayed relatively dry for the most part and the festival was well attended in general. This year the BIA featured four participating restaurants in the food fair including two newer additions to South Hill. The cuisines of Dairy Queen, Magda’s Restaurant, Pizza Plus and Lovely Thai Restaurant kept the festival crowd happy with great offerings of different cuisines while Jim Cook and Lesismore provided the musical entertainment. Overall it was a great success and the South Hill BIA would like to thank all the participating restaurants, organizations, sponsors, and volunteers who made this event a great success. We look forward to seeing you all at future South Hill events and at the festival next year!
