Come home to Highland!

TOWN OF HIGHLAND COPYRIGHT © 2015

SOUNDS OF SUMMER: Sultry skies and oh-so-warm evening temperatures lend themselves to spending time outdoors. Grab a comfy lawn chair and your favorite bug spray and head to Main Square for our concert series. The July 9 concert features legendary polka music by Dan Mateja & the IPA Tribute Band and the July 16 show features 50s, 60s and 70s tunes by Fast Eddie & The Corvettes. NOTE: In the event of inclement weather, concerts will be held in the Lincoln Community Center Fieldhouse. Please bring your own chair. INFO: (219) 838-0114 or highlandparks.org. 

SIDEWALK PROGRAM: In conjunction with the town's summer sidewalk replacement program, the Town Council has secured an additional $50,000 in Community Development Block Grant funds to assist low- to moderate-income homeowners in replacing dilapidated concrete. If your sidewalk panels need replacing, download a form here, to see if you qualify for the CDBG or conventional sidewalk replacement programs. INFO: Call Public Works at (219) 972-5069. 

When it’s time to get your summer party on, all roads lead to Highland’s Main Square Park. From the annual festival and live concerts to the twilight parade and beautiful fireworks, we've got plenty of Independence Day activities that'll make you oooh! and aaaah!

MOVIES IN THE PARK: Join Highland Parks and Recreation at dusk (around 8:30 p.m.) July 10 for an evening in the park to sit back, relax and watch “Paddington” on the big screen in Main Square Park. The concession stand will sell popcorn and fountain drinks. Bring a blanket or comfortable lawn chair. If it rains, the movie will be shown indoors at the Lincoln Community Center Fieldhouse.
