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.
Ice Cream Social and Art Day
Sunday, June 27th, 2021 (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.
This year we are adding an Art Day event to coincide with the Ice Cream Social. The Art day will have 3 ‘stations’: 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 Friday
June 11 - September 30 (5-7pm @ Lafayette Park)
2021 marks 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. Stop 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!
Pop-Up Parties see pics from St Patty and Cinco De Mayo PopUps on photo page!
The MHRA hosted two fun and festive parties in 2021 to celebrate ethnic holidays--St. Patrick's Day and Cinco de Mayo. Both took place at Lafayette Park on beautiful sunny evenings. The MHRA provided hot Irish coffees and cold Guinness for St. Paddy's Day and Margaritas, Coronas and a Mexican food truck for Cinco de Mayo. Residents loved getting together to sociallize with neighbors after a very long lockdown!
Murray Hill Community Picnic
Sunday, September 19th 4-7pm at 144 Lafayette Ave. (across from Lafayette Park)
The premier event in Murray Hill is the Annual Neighborhood Party, hosted by community members for community members. This is a great evening as summer winds down to reconnect with friends over great food, drinks, and stories.
Dogs n' Donuts
October 2021 (8:30-10am Day TBD)
Come out for an informal meet and greet for neighbors and their dogs at Lafayette Park. Non dog owners welcome too! Stop by for some free coffee, donuts and dog treats while out on your morning walk with your dog.
December 2021 (5-7pm @ Location TBD)
Our holiday party is a wonderful way to kick off the holiday season with neighbors. Enjoy holiday music, decorations, and of course cocktails and appetizers, all courtesy of the MHRA. Most recently, the event has taken place the first Sunday in December, immediately following the Chocolate Binge Festival. Mark your calendar now, as it's become a "must go" holiday event!
Easter Egg Hunt
April 2022 (see pics from this year's event on Photo Page!)
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!
