Save the date for the 2015 HMBCA Community Garage Sale

GarageSale-2015The 2015 HMBCA Community Garage Sale will be held on Saturday, May 30th!  This is your chance to get rid of those unwanted items you've dug up during spring cleaning and put a little extra cash in your pocket.

Registration opens soon

In a couple of weeks registration will open for HMBCA members to list their garage sale on our website and on a printed list and map for eager shoppers. The HMBCA takes care of all the advertising to make sure that the entire city knows we're open for business! The more homes that register and hold a garage sale, the more shoppers that we can attract.

The rain date for the sale is Sunday, May 31st.

Stay tuned for more updates!

Easter Egg Hunt – ALLERGY ALERT

It has come to our attention that some of the candy handed out at the Easter Egg Hunt today "May contain Peanuts, Tree Nuts, Wheat, Milk and Eggs." While the ingredient lists do not contain peanuts or tree nuts, we felt it important to communicate this important information as soon as possible.

The HMBCA is updating its food policies for future events.

Event Announcement: The Easter Bunny is coming to Half Moon Bay!

What: The 3rd Annual HMBCA Easter Egg Hunt
When: Saturday, April 4, 2015 - Starts at 10am sharp
(Rain Date: Saturday, April 11)
Where: Half Moon Bay Park

To keep it fair for everyone, we ask that no hunting begin before the official start. Please meet at the Gazebo at 10am sharp.

We heard a rumour that the Easter Bunny has hidden his eggs at Half Moon Bay Park and needs help collecting them on Saturday, April 4th!

At 10am we're inviting the kids of Half Moon Bay to collect the eggs around the play structures and near the soccer field at Half Moon Bay Park. For every 10 eggs found the kids can exchange them for some chocolate!

The Easter Bunny is also looking for some volunteers to help get ready for the event earlier Saturday morning. Please contact Lisa Noseworthy, Director of Events, at if you can help out.
