Rain or Shine!
Support our local businesses and sponsors who have generously funded the production of this event. Highlands Day is about the community coming together – don’t miss celebrating the end of summer by enjoying the much needed rain.
We are aware of the forecast and watching for updates. We have made some adjustments for the weather, including expanding the eating tent in front of the stage to 20’x80′ so more of you can enjoy the awesome FOOD TRUCK offerings and the LIVE ENTERTAINMENT in a dry space!
Road Closure Reminder!
The streets around Manchester Court and Village Green Park as well as the Starpoint Condos (NE Park Drive at 25th Avenue NE to NE Park Drive at 30thAve NE) will be closed on Saturday, August 29th at NOON. A special event permit has been received by the City of Issaquah for this purpose (# SPE15-00030). In preparation for the street closures, we will place “no parking” signage around Village Green Park and Starpoint Condos a few days before the event requiring all vehicles parked on this section of Park Drive be moved by NOON on Saturday, August 29th, 2015 in observance of this community event. Vehicles that have not been moved by NOON will be towed at owner’s expense.
