Along 32nd Avenue between Julian to Osceola streets, revelry will take place throughout the day June 24 to celebrate the Highland neighborhood and the various businesses in the area.
The event is put on by the Highland Merchants Association along with Team Player Productions and Nostalgic Homes.
“We really love featuring all of these local businesses within the community and giving them an avenue to really connect with people in person, especially post-COVID,” said Kristen Horpedahl Slater, an event planner with Team Player Productions.
“It’s really easy for them to get lost in a digital world. So I think being able to showcase their local businesses in a way that really brings the community together is really exciting for us.”
Horpedahl Slater said this year the event plans to have more activities for children along with some new features, such as a vinyl DJ lounge. Food trucks and various other vendors will return this year, and Horpedahl Slater said there are more vendors this year than ever before. Team Player Productions has coordinated the event the last five years.
