Originated 46 years ago, the Hillcrest Harvest Bazaar is a fundraiser for the Hillcrest School Association. Similar to recent years, the Bazaar is set to display for purchase, incredible arts and crafts created by a wide range of participants. Per organizers, the event would not be possible without the help of so many local volunteers who care about the future of Hillcrest Elementary School, plus the children and parents of the community.
