Once Upon a Highlands Day….
Once upon a time, in a village on a hillside in the land of Issaquah, the people declared,
“Hear Ye! Hear Ye! The 26th day of the month of August, in the year of two-thousand-seventeen, has been pronounced Highlands Day!”
Royalty, knights, jesters and the like marked their calendars in anticipation of this day to celebrate the fairy-tale life that is living in Issaquah Highlands!
Soon, the Lords of the land began to contact the Highlands Council to pledge their financial support as official sponsors of the festival. The festival would be funded by the first day of May, giving way to shopkeepers and merchants who applied to erect their stalls of wares and information for the benefit of the villager families.
On festival day, all the storybook characters from everyone’s favorite classic tales will come to life as we enjoy live entertainment, hearty fare, and medieval fun.
