Events and Classes at Code Ninjas

At Code Ninjas, kids ages 7-14 learn to code with a game-based curriculum. Kids can attend up to twice a week, for an hour session each. Their curriculum teaches coding by using games such as Scratch®, Minecraft®, and Roblox®. Kids are not just passively playing games – they are building games – and have a great time doing it. It is divided into levels, from white to black belt, that kids advance through as they build their coding skills.

Other programs offered by Code Ninjas: Parent’s Night Out, Camps, & Birthday Parties. Find them on Facebook here! Get more details about their Grand Opening Event here!

Mast General Store Tent Sale

At the Mast Store, when we have a sale, it’s an event. Trade Street will be closed, and you can enjoy live music from time to time throughout the event. It’s a great time to get ready for the cooler temperatures of fall and to save a little money in the process! Everything under the tent is 50% OFF suggested retail prices.  Remember, Trade Street will be closed right in front of the Mast Store. You’ll find plenty of parking in the 6th/Cherry-Trade Parking Garage. There are additional spots available on the street.

• Friday, September 28 – 11 a.m. – 9 p.m.
• Saturday, September 29 – 9 a.m. – 9 p.m.
• Sunday, September 30 – 9 a.m. – 7 p.m.


October Festivals and Trunk-or-Treats

We have a plethora of ways to find fun fall happenings in our area, including our September Festivals HERE, Pumpkin Patches, Hayrides & More HERE, and of course our Event Calendar page HERE! One blog that is always highly anticipated is our list of October Festivals and Trunk or Treats happening throughout the Triad! We have these events in chronological order coming up in October. Since it is only September, you can expect our lists to double as we add more events! You can visit the directory with our October events HERE! Enjoy!
