Highland Park Porch Concerts Lineup for 9/6

We have another amazing line-up this weekend! Be sure to thank our musicians for entertaining us again this weekend – and don’t forget to wear masks and stay at least six feet from people not from your household. Map attached.

NOTE: Because of their overwhelming popularity, we will continue to organize porch concerts until the end of September. However, because it is getting dark earlier, beginning next week (Sept 13), concerts will be an hour earlier, from 6-7 pm.
