The Chase Oaks premier social event of the year is
Saturday, October 24th -
our FUN FEST & Talent Show II!

If you were one of the 300 in attendance for last year’s event held on Player Drive or will be one of the 500 residents attending this year’s FUN FEST to be held on Post Oak Drive, you will be pleased to learn how the event has been expanded and improved for everyone’s enjoyment.


Bigger and better Door Prizes such as a $ 250 Best Buy gift card, a $ 150 Target gift card, and a $ 100 mystery prize will be in the drawing for those getting their early tickets registering your family for FUN FEST by October 22th.

Choose your strategy on how to win one of the Raffle Door Prizes from our event's drawing.  Business friends of Chase Oaks and our FUN FEST Sponsors have donated over $5000 in gift certificates and prizes to be awarded during the drawings.

The Kids Corral has been expanded from one Bounce House to three Bounce Houses and a Slide for the delight (and safety) of the younger residents of Chase Oaks.

More Cash Awards for the contestants who enter our “Chase Oaks Got Talent” competition for ages 6 – 17. Rules for the Talent Show are available on the Web site and in the Newsletters.

We are excited to have “Love and War in Texas” onsite grilling their award winning Texas BBQ brisket for your purchase of sandwiches, venison sausage, and other favorites.

Guided Tours and Safety demonstrations from the City of Plano Police and Fire Departments.


Street Entertainment from Balloon Betty as well as cotton candy & pop corn for sale.


Meet “Crime Dog McGruff” between 4:00 and 5:00 PM.

Prizes will be awarded this year to the winners of our Games and Activities as well as bragging rights for the winners on our Web site page. The age groups for the games are broken down into ages 6 – 10, ages 11- 15, and 16 to adult.


Hours have been expanded to 3:00 to 7:00 PM to accommodate the music, surprise entertainment, and raffle ticket drawings for the $ 5,000 in donated merchandise and gifts from local merchants throughout the afternoon of October 24th.

FUN FEST is set up as a Chase Oaks neighborhood street carnival with music, food, games and
activities that combine for a great Saturday afternoon (4:00 - 7:00 PM) and a chance to meet your neighbors. Last year, local merchants donated over $6,000 worth of door prizes which were awarded to attendees in a raffle ticket drawing. This year, there will also be prizes awarded for winners of the four game competitions.

Local businesses will have booths touting their services and ways to save money for your household.

The City of Plano Police and Fire Departments will also be here to demonstrate their equipment, give safety tips and answer your questions.

Last year, we had more than 300 residents enjoy the multiple talents of our younger set (ages 6 to 17) who were competing for a $100 cash prize with their musical, dance, gymnastics, and instrumental acts. Ani Mayo, who performed a crowd-pleasing tap dance routine last year, and Makenna Welborn, an accomplished gymnast, will be back to defend their first and second place performances.

Check out at starting September 10th for updated details regarding ticket sales, street location, as well as rules and registration guidelines for the Talent Show. We’ll also have signs posted around the neighborhood.

We have been working with the City of Plano to have numerous broken sidewalks repaired. The last word from the City was they were going to start in July, but as you see while driving or walking the neighborhood the work began on June 18th. This first stage of sidewalk repairs for tripping hazards of two and a half inches or higher will cover nineteen homes. The list for the other half of the neighborhood is being compiled to be reviewed and approved by the City for sidewalk repairs in August.


Sorry for the traffic delays on June 19th as the City has replaced all the bridge reflectors thanks to the efforts of Nancy Householder.


The City of Plano has notified us that they will be in the area starting June 29th to be sure all sidewalks are clear of tree limbs and branches which are hanging too low over the sidewalk.  Reminder, they must be trimmed back to at least seven feet over the sidewalk and bushes planted along the sidewalk must be kept flush with the pavement.”
