Bouncy houses at the next Hometown Social

The monthly Black Diamond event is this Friday, July 26.

Ten Trails, a Black Diamond housing development, will be hosting another Hometown Social this Friday, July 26.

The theme of the night is “Bounce the Night Away,” since there will be multiple sorts of bouncy houses for young children to enjoy between the hours of 6 and 9 p.m.

As always, there will also be food trucks, a face painter, a beer garden for adults, live entertainment featuring the Blue Wave Band, and the new Sunset Market, which boasts more than 30 vendors of food and crafts.
