Autumn Events


HalloweenDowntown Trick or Treat provides a safe, fun-filled environment for Trick-or-Treaters of all ages. Even those with no children will find plenty to celebrate on Main Street October 31st. That’s when local kids, decked out in their spookiest, silliest and cutest costumes, gather to collect a teacher’s ransom of candy distributed by local businesses and charities. There’s live music, dancing, free hot dogs and drinks, and an irresistible excitement built into the celebration. Virtually the entire community – kids, grown-ups, pets – shows up in costume to celebrate. Visitors are not only invited to this party but encouraged to join the fun. (Please keep all Zombies on a leash at all times!)



Highlands Food and Wine Festival has won a passionate regional following, thanks to its intricate blending of food, drink (craft beers, exquisitely formulated cocktails, and internationally ranked wine labels), music, and, always, the unexpected.
