Note that if the event must be postponed due to weather, we will make announcement on Nextdoor by 4 PM on the day of the event and will reschedule to future date.
As in the first concert, the musician will be in the back of a pickup truck with one car following for safety. He will play guitar and sing mellow, happy songs. The #DriveByConcert will stop every few houses to play a song. Please do not approach the truck or congregate in your neighbors’ yards. To safely hold this event, we have to ensure social distancing.
The musician, Cameron Havens, and sound company, Blue Circle Media, are both donating their services. If you enjoy what you hear, they’d love a small tip, but that is completely optional.

- Sound: Blue Circle Media / @Chris-Cloe on Venmo / or paypal.me/cloebewan
We have cleared this event with the City of Plano and Plano Police Department, and will follow all City of Plano ordinances and laws, as well as being within legal decibel limits for a neighborhood. We hope you enjoy a few minutes of live music from your front yard. If you share any photos or videos on social media, please tag @planomagazine and use hashtag #DriveByConcert.
A few instructions to make this a fun and enjoyable event:
- Bring chairs so that you can relax and enjoy the show.
- It is difficult to estimate times when the music truck will drive by your location, Suggest you arrive early. You can always visit neighbors as you await the music truck.
- If you live on roads that will not be covered in this concert, use the map to pick out a location where you can view the concert.
Please maintain appropriate social distancing if you are in the vicinity of other neighbors.
Thank you and see you soon! If anyone has any issues or concerns, please call Jennifer with Plano Magazine at 214-850-3954. We hope you enjoy this musical event.

July 4 Parade and Picnic
Whiffletree celebrated 4th of July with its annual parade and picnic. As in previous years, we were honored by Plano Fire and Police personnel who led the parade around the neighborhood. Following the parade, we recited the Pledge of Allegiance and sang the National Anthem in recognition of the momentous events 243 years ago leading to the formation of the USA.
The picnic was held at the pavilion at Prairie Meadow Park where the Hamburger Man served a fantastic lunch to 163 neighbors and a number of Plano Police Officers.
Special thanks to Karen Slott, Whiffletree HOA Social Committee Chairperson, for all her work organizing the event with support from our great HOA board members, Tom Slott for his outstanding photography work, the Hamburger Man for a great lunch, Plano Fire and Police for leading the parade, and of course, all the Whiffletree neighbors who participated in this annual event.
