2016's theme is:

"Highlands Community Association -

Celebrating 60 Years of Family, Friends and Fun" 

Build your float for the Parade!  The annual Highlands Community Association 4th of July celebration that the Highlands is famous for, is fast approaching. And to make it happen we need help to come from all around the Highlands.

It is not too early to start planning your parade entries! Design your float or entry to show your appreciation to the HCA which is made up of community volunteers that give of their time and themselves to create the 4th of July events for you.  Perhaps you march as a bunch of fireworks or use some cardboard to make your over version of the LOWDOWN. Let's show our love for our Highlands neighborhood that the HCA volunteers work so hard to maintain our quality of life in the Highlands. It wouldn't be the Highlands without our Fireworks and 4th of July celebrations!

Come join your neighbors & friends by decorating a float or a bike and marching in the parade!

4th of July Parade

4th of July Food Booth

4th of July Midway Games

We need baked goods for the 3rd of July fireworks and we need volunteers to help sell them.  It would be a good thing to do together as a family, especially if you are going to the fireworks anyway.  The fireworks alone cost nearly $10,000 to put on and to help pay for it we sell baked goods and other items (coffee, hot cocoa, glow sticks) on site at the school.  We also collect donations, help by cleaning up in the evening afterwards as well as the morning afterwards.  If you can help fill a volunteer shift related to any of these fireworks tasks, it would be a big help.

On the 4th, the Food Booth, parade and midway also need volunteers.  Help serve drinks or burgers for an hour. Or come down early and help setup tables and chairs.  Run a midway games booth. Older kids can run a game booth by themselves.

The Highlands 4th of July is a special event in our neighborhood and helps define what makes the Highlands a unique place to live.  Please find a way to make helping out the community a part of your family's 4th of July tradition.  Go to the links above and pick a job and a time that works for you. You'll love how great it feels to volunteer in your community!

Thanks, and see you on the 4th!


These events are for residents of the Highlands, paid for by dues and donations to the Highlands Community Association and our wonderful local business sponsors. As a resident, you may bring a guest, but kindly do not place an open invitation on social media. We are at capacity for our events and want to maintain space for Highlands residents to attend. All residents will be mailed a Highlands Lowdown Newsletter in June with a list of events and times. We purposely do not list those on the website.  Former residents are always welcomed guests!
