Do you think you’ll be able to have the vendors like we used too? The different festivals? My big complaint was parking and sometimes I felt sardined in.

I Believe Our City to Be Spot On, with These Massive Improvements!

Can't wait to be a Vendor on Wednesday nights

Wow! Exciting!

Candy Baldi Tom Harvey there won't be parking for you on my street!!!!

When did the park come into existence? The little beige brick, shotgun building across the street in the center of the photo used to be “Mike’s” back in the 60’s. He was a butcher/ grocer. He also carried some candy. My brother and a couple of classmates from St. James were leaving the store when Mike (probably with reason) accused them of shoplifting and chased them with his butcher knife. He managed to snag my brother by the collar in front of the playground while brandishing his knife. One of the priests interceded and Mike, still fuming, returned to his store. Mike’s was declared “off limits” from then on.

Are the events updated for 2021? Is there going to be Market on Wednesday nights in the summer??

My husband and I lived in Highwood for 26 years, and I will always love it. We moved in 2019 in search of a better climate, but if I could pick Highwood up and plop it down in Texas, I absolutely would!

Great job Matt Feddermann!

love the area. Its people, is neighborhood, its establishments, Its people!!

Nicely Done
