Skye Canyon is introducing a new way for the community to connect while still being socially distant through its new Thrive@Skye program.

Similar to events from past years that attracted thousands of attendees (Chalk and Cheers, Skye and Stars and Fit Fest), the goals remain the same: to continue to inspire all residents to enrich their lives with a series of family events that encourage the community to engage while maintaining the safety directives in place today.

The series kicks off on Earth Day, April 22 with ChalkForEarth, a sidewalk chalk challenge that invites residents to create an earth-themed chalk masterpiece on the sidewalk or in the driveway of their house.

An opportunity to show community spirit and get creative, ChalkForEarth, is a challenge that the family can do together.

Participants can then upload their submission to Skye Canyon social media on April 22 and tag @SkyeCanyon and #ChalkForEarth or email a photograph to events@olympiacompanies.com for entry in a contest for prizes.

A reinterpreted version of a Skye and Stars event is set for World Astronomy Day on May 2.

Re-created as an opportunity for families to continue their love of stargazing, the new “Driveway Edition” encourages residents to have a nighttime picnic from the driveway while participating in the event all together yet apart.

On Memorial Day, May 25, Thrive@Skye will host its first-ever Patriotic Car Parade. An opportunity for families to decorate their vehicle in red, white and blue, entrants will then be able to take part in a driving parade led by representatives from Kline Veterans Fund on a designated route throughout the neighborhoods.
