Announcing the 1st Annual East Hillsborough Discovery Quest. The event is free to the public, and will assist East Hillsborough County residents by connecting them to variety of service and program providers, career and job opportunities, health screenings, all in one place. Residents will learn more about what is available, be able to sign up for programs, apply for assistance, and attend brief informative seminars. Not everyone in attendance will need assistance, but by learning about what is available they can help connect friends, family and co-workers.
There will also be variety of other activities for children and families to enjoy. EHDQ will showcase our local musicians, dancers, and artist. The day will include door prizes, which you can register to win by bringing a canned food item, donate blood or bring in eye glasses for the Lion’s Club. There will also be the 1st Annual War on I-4, Food Truck Battle, where three regions: Orlando, Lakeland and Tampa area trucks will compete for best in region and best overall trucks.
This event is organized by the East Hillsborough Advisory Council, which serves the Plant City Neighborhood Service Center, along with the City of Plant City, Hillsborough County’s Neighborhood Service Center, New Hope at the Cornerstone, and several local non-profits, civic organizations, churches and volunteers.
As of this week, there are 85 vendors signed up to participate, 12 of the top performing food trucks from Orlando, Lakeland and Tampa, children’s arts and crafts activities, demonstrations, guest speakers and live entertainment arranged by volunteers working on this event. There is going to be a large puzzle for families and children to help paint. We even have a stilt walker and balloon artist coming out to entertain.
