Highland offers something for everyone! With 198 acres of parkland across the community there is always outdoor activity to enjoy. Main Square plays host to events all year round beginning in January with New Year’s Eve Fireworks and the annual 12th Night Tree Burning. When the weather warms up Highland packs the park with food, crafts and beer gardens! The Midweek Music & Market, Summer Theatre, Fourth of July Festival and Last Call for Summer Festival in August are events visitors will not want to miss at Main Square Park.
Speaking of festivals and attractions, don’t miss the annual Car Cruise in June or the Festival of the Trail in October! Oh, and, did we mention the Erie-Lackawanna Trail? Whether you like to bike, jog, walk or people-watch, you’ll enjoy the 70-plus acre landscaped trail that is part of Highland’s park system. And by the way…like to skateboard? Construction is underway at Sheppard Park for a new, state-of-the-art skateboard park.
If the outdoors is not for you, Highland Parks and Recreation offers the Lincoln Community Center where people of all ages can enjoy a wide range of fitness programs, adult and youth sports classes and leagues, as well as lifestyle and arts & cultural programs. Be sure to take a look at the HPRD seasonal brochure for a complete listing of events, classes, programs and leagues. And, join us when the Northwest Indiana Symphony Orchestra brings their amazing musicians to Monbeck Auditorium at Highland High School. You’ll agree these performances are not to be missed!
