Pop-Up Parties (see pics from St Patty ('22) and Cinco De Mayo ('21) PopUps on photo page!)
The MHRA hosted our annual St. Patrick's Day party at 139 Layfayette (indoors due to inclement weather). Complete with serenading bagpiper! We look forward to Cinco de Mayo in May at Lafayette Park. The MHRA provided hot Irish coffees and cold Guinness for St. Paddy's Day and Margaritas, Coronas and a Mexican food truck are on tap for Cinco de Mayo. Residents loved getting together to sociallize with neighbors after a very long lockdown! Join us in 2022!
St Patricks Day party '22 was fantastic!
Cinco de Mayo party: May 5 from 5-7 at Lafayette Park
Easter Egg Hunt
3 April 2022 at Acton's Park
The Murray Hill Egg Hunt is a wonderful family, fun event organized by the residents of the community. As each year passes, the event grows in popularity and offers the community a chance to come together to pull off a great event for the children. It also offers fun games such as sack races, jelly bean counting contest, egg and spoon races and a visit from a bunny!
Ice Cream Social and Art Day (See photo page!)
Sunday, June 26th, 2022 (3:00 - 5:00 @ Lafayette Park)
Held after school has ended on a Sunday evening, the Ice Cream Social is a great way for all the kids (and adults) in the neighborhood to come together for a quick summer kickoff. Bring out the whole family to enjoy the sundae bar, with plenty of ice cream and all the toppings, right by the water in Lafayette Park.
In 2021 we added an Art Day event to coincide with the Ice Cream Social. We plan on continuing the Art day with Bubbles, Sidewalk Chalk, and Rock Decorating. Come out, have some fun, show your artistic talent, and have an ice cream. What’s not to like?
Summer Happy Hours - Every Summer 2022 Friday
Every Friday; June 10 - September 30 (5-7pm @ Lafayette Park)
2021 marked the third year of our BYOB happy hours every Friday at Lafayette Park. This is an informal way to wrap up the week and say hello to neighbors. Next year we plan on continuing the events so plan on stopping by with whatever you'd like to eat and drink and enjoy the setting sun along Spa Creek. The MHRA usually has a bottle of wine or two on hand for impromtu guests! Kids are welcome!
Dinner Under the Stars
Wednesdays, June - September
Although this is not a MHRA event, we encourage all our residents to support local restaurants and enjoy beautiful summer evenings at Dining Under the Stars on West Street and all the way down Main St. This outdoor dining experience is quickly becoming one of Annapolipolitans' favorite traditions. Join the community for a fun night out under the stars with friends and family! Enjoy dining, live music, and dancing all summer long on Wednesday evenings from 6pm to 10pm on the first block of West Street off Church Circle.
Murray Hill Community Picnic (see Photo pages!)

The premier event in Murray Hill is the Annual Neighborhood Party, hosted by community members for community members. After a COVID pause last year we once again held the event in '21. It was a great evening as summer wounded down to reconnect with friends over great food, drinks, and stories. We look forward to another great event next year!
