On Friday, May 6, 2022, nearly 300 elementary school parents and guardians gathered along Magnolia Avenue, alongside the beautiful new PHS Theater building, for a festive street party celebrating Spring Fling 2022 “Under a Piedmont Sky”.

The first in-person Spring Fling party in three years, “Under a Piedmont Sky” was an opportunity for Beach, Havens, and Wildwood families to meet, to raise a glass, and to build community spirit while raising funds for Piedmont’s elementary schools. With fairy lights illuminating the space, and heaters chasing away the chill, attendees enjoyed specialty cocktails and a multicultural array of snacks. Lively chatter and laughter filled the night with folks vying to get that last bid in on the silent auction, which included treasures from handcrafted bags and jewelry, to a private dinner prepared by the chef/owner of Commis restaurant. The evening ended with music and dancing as local legends Rusty Stringfield played pop classics with a bluegrass spin, accompanied by special guest Sam Wilde, PUSD’s instrumental music teacher.

This year’s focus was on rebuilding the community by getting elementary school parents together to have some fun and the event was truly a city-wide effort. PEF would like to thank Pete Palmer and our partners at the school district, the city, Piedmont police, the fire department, and our parent and business sponsors.
