We Go Together June 9th-12th, Highwood Metra Station Parking Lot

Celebrate Highwood is thrilled to announce it will be hosting its 2nd annual Kick-Off to Summer ‘Grads and Grease’ Carnival Thursday June 9th through Sunday June 12th in the Highwood Metra Station parking lot. Recognizing the end of the school year, the community is invited to come out and celebrate. Graduates of all ages from 2022 are invited to celebrate their end of the year accomplishments and attendees dressing Grease attire will enjoy $5 off unlimited ride wristbands.

“We are so happy to be able to continue this tradition. We held our inaugural Kick-Off to Summer Carnival last year for all graduates from 2020 and 2021 who missed out on so much during their Covid end-of-school years,” says Brad Slavin, President Celebrate Highwood. “The Grease theme seemed appropriate as we encourage everyone to come out dressed in their favorite character from the movie to share in the excitement.”

The carnival fun doesn’t stop there. Adults can enjoy specialty Party Can cocktails and beer from Ravinia Brewing Co., while the kids enjoy the carnival rides, games and food. Hours are Thursday 5-10 p.m., Friday 5-10 p.m., Saturday 1-10 p.m. and Sunday 1-9 p.m. The unlimited ride specials are $30 per person, per session, $5 discount for 2022 Graduates and attendees dressed in Grease attire. $30 unlimited ride wristbands will be available Thursday 5-9 p.m., Saturday and Sunday 1-5 p.m. $35 prime time unlimited ride wristbands will be available Friday and Saturday 5:30-9:30 p.m.
