Upcoming Events
Wood Acres is a very active community with many family friendly events throughout the year starting with the Easter Egg Hunt and Wood Acres Elementary School 5K in the early spring, our annual 4th of July parade, a special Halloween "Meet the Great Pumpkin" with closed off streets, the Jingle Bells Dog Walk with firetrucks and bagpipers to start off the Holiday season in early December and other holiday events. We have an annual Newcomers Reception (TBD) and the ever important Dumpster Day in May. We also hold two events to raise funds for the 4th of July parade including a whiskey tasting in March and a beer tasting in October.
