Huntwick Fall Happy Hour!

Join the Huntwick Civic Association and your neighbors for the August Huntwick Happy Hour on November 3rd!

Huntwick Clubhouse (5300 Coral Gables)
6pm – 8pm

We’ll be serving up beer, wine, and a signature witches brew cocktail!

We’ll also have a chili bar with all the fixin’s, so you won’t need to skip dinner to come sip with us. 

Get one last use out of your Halloween costume or come dressed in your best flannels and fall attire (even if it doesn’t feel particularly autumnal outside quite yet). 

There’s a $10 cost at the door to get in to help offset the price of the drinks, so don’t forget to bring cash!

Huntwick Holiday Bow, Mantel and Luminary Sale!


A Huntwick Forest Tradition!

For over 50 years, Huntwick residents have united on Christmas Eve to continue a time-honored tradition of lighting luminary candles. Thank you for your participation in this tradition that highlights the peace, glow, and joy of the holiday season! In case of inclement weather, luminaries will be lit at dusk on Christmas Day.

If ordering via check, please make checks payable to Huntwick Civic Association and use the order form provided in this month’s Huntwick Herald. Orders must be turned in to your block captain by Friday, November 3rd. Or,  purchase luminaries and bows below. Digital orders will be open until November 6th.

  • Red Holiday Bow – $8/bow — Perfect for your gaslight!
  • Luminaries – $14/box (36 – 15-hour candles, 36 bags, and sand)

All Luminary and Bow orders (online and by check) will be distributed to block captains on Saturday, December 2nd and delivered in the following week. If you missed your opportunity to place an order, you may be able to purchase inside the HRF Clubhouse from 9-11 on December 2nd. However, supplies will be limited, so to ensure you’re able to take part in this holiday tradition, we strongly recommend placing an order through your block captains or the order form below!

We hope you can help continue this great Huntwick tradition!

Online ordering for Bows and Luminaries has been completed. Thank you to all those who plan on taking part in this yearly tradition!

Supplies will be limited and first come/first served. Happy Holidays!

Community Event: Trick or Treat at Painted Tree Boutiques

This isn’t a Huntwick Forest event, but it is a great chance to let your kiddos get some extra use out of their costumes right in our community!

The Painted Tree Boutiques in Champions (5407 Cypress Creek Parkway) will be hosting a pet and kid-friendly trick or treating event on October 21st from 12pm – 3pm. While the kids fill up on sweet treats, you can shop for some holiday decor while supporting local businesses. That’s a win-win-win!

Huntwick Forest will also be hosting it’s own Halloween event on October 28th at 5pm. We’ll have games, face painting, crafts, and more! Bring your chairs and blankets to enjoy a family friendly movie at dusk!
