Heard on Hurd to close out spring break
EDMOND To close spring break with a bang on Saturday, people of all ages can head to the Heard on Hurd, featuring pop-up shops, food trucks and live music, at the corner of Broadway and Hurd in Edmond.
The Citizens Bank of Edmond hosts the Heard on Hurd from 6-10 p.m. on the third Saturday of the month from March through October.
Ann Chen, the senior marketing officer at the Citizens Bank of Edmond, said the bank has been holding the event since September 2014 with the purpose of expressing appreciation to customers and the community, as well as showcasing Edmond as an attractive destination.
"It's just a great night out to spend with friends and family," Chen said. "The reason it's 'Heard on Hurd' is Hurd Street is actually a relatively lesser known street, so we wanted to bring attention to it."
The event, Chen said, will include a variety of food trucks so that even the pickiest eaters will be satisfied.
"There's ethnic cuisines, there's burgers, there's hot dogs, there's BBQ, there's Asian food, there's Cajun food," she said, "(and) we have plenty of dessert options."
People can shop at booths, Chen said, that cater to all ages and feature merchandise such as women's apparel, woodwork and soap.
"We have a specialized kids' area behind the bank at Hurd and Broadway," she said. "There's activities. OKC Energy usually has a booth."
People also can enjoy the live entertainment, Chen said, of Hannah Wolff, Kalo and Grant Adams, who is a graduate of the Academy of Contemporary Music at the University of Central Oklahoma, located in Edmond.
