With no theme outside of “enjoy the neighborhood,” Highland Fest is one of those summertime street parties that offers a little bit of everything. For those who imbibe, there’s a beer tent where you can enjoy a drink with a neighbor. Or go all out at the wine and beer tasting Friday night hosted by Thomas Liquors ($20 scores you 30 samples). Friday night also offers a free screening of the kid-friendly classic Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. Saturday’s highlights include an adorable weiner dog race, and the All-Ford Car and Truck Show on Sunday should attract autophiles. Other fun to be had? Find local bands on multiple stages, carnival-style eats, a juried art show, inflatables, and morning runs. The Highland Tower will be also be open to the public on Saturday and Sunday for those who would like to take in a birds-eye view of the celebration. Find more info at www.highlandfest.com.
