The HPCC organizes and sponsors events in the neighborhood throughout the year. Check here for updates on upcoming events and pictures from past events.
Annual HPCC Pumpkin Patch
On Oct 15th, the neighborhood welcomed sunny fall weather and the HPCC’s annual Pumpkin Patch! Folks of all ages came to enjoy the decorations, choose pumpkins, and paint pumpkins, thanks to the Highland Park Garden Club! We gave away approximately 125 pumpkins to visitors as they stopped by. We saw long-time, new, and former residents. Thanks for coming out for such a great event!
Donations raised support the HPCC’s activities. Special thanks to the volunteers who came down to help ensure the event was a success!
