The Highland neighborhood of St. Paul retains the amicable feel of a small borough, as evidenced by the community vibe of the 34th annual Highland Fest. Evoking a carnivalesque atmosphere, the eventt is notable for featuring a weekend-long juried art fair involving artists working in a multitude of mediums. Adults can seek refreshments in the Summit-sponsored beer tent, or sample libations at a scheduled wine tasting. Should one feel the need to burn off excess calories, the fest offers group Zumba and a 5K run. Entertainment options abound, including concerts (a highlight being local vocalist Kat Perkins, a semi-finalist on NBC’s The Voice), an outdoor screening of Top Gun, weiner dog races, dance performances, and fireworks. History buffs can head to the library to hear author Brian McMahon (The Ford Century) recount the history of Ford, while the vehicles themselves can be found down the road at the All Ford Car and Truck Show.
