April 9 was one special night at Eastmark. Dreams became experiences and imagination became real. The second annual Eastmark AwesomeFest was a spectacular night filled with glowing entertainment that celebrated all things awesome.

An estimated 12,000 people came from the Eastmark community and beyond for this one-of-a-kind, all-sensory experience.  Interactive exhibits by local partners, games and activities, roaming characters providing unexpected delight at every turn.  Kids of all ages strolled The Eastmark Great Park trying not to miss any of the aerial and circus acts, colorful performers and of course the opportunity to try out the Zip Line, Inflatable Water Slide, Trapeze, glow Face Painting and even a full-size Ferris Wheel. Yep. That’s how awesome, AwesomeFest was.

Eastmark residents could opt into a VIP _DSC8310AwesomeFest2016_girlsExperience in the community’s newest amenity – the Eastmark Community Pool and Bus Stop at The ‘Mark with food and drinks, and even Mermaids and Pirates!

At the center of it all, the Eastmark Event Pavilion saw non-stop action starting with Foot Clan. The hip-hop dance troop entertained before leading a “dance off” with the crowd. If you ask us, the crowd won. Glowing performers from Velocity Circus contorted, danced on balls and rolled in hoops across the stage. And popular bands Jared and the Mill, Thaddeus Rose and Liquid Blue kept the music going and the crowd dancing throughout the night.

When the crowds needed to nosh, they had 22 options – from a gourmet food tent & beer garden to local food trucks and everything in between. An added bonus: all beer and wine garden beverage proceeds benefited The Care Fund charity. So AwesomeFest goers got to fill up while raise dollars to help Arizona families stay in their homes while supporting a hospitalized child.
