Independence Day Celebrations 2020

theme is:

                   We Are All In This Together

Highlands neighbors are "all in this together" to make the HCA 4th of July Celebrations the best we can to lift our community spirit. Highlands Community Association will organize the 64th Annual 4th of July celebrations, with adjusted events to follow the CDC and San Mateo County health regulations. 

This year we will celebrate with the Fun Run and 4th of July Parade. As well, we will have a House Decoration Contest all on the 4th, see flyer in the Lowdown or listed below. T-shirts this year will be available for purchase before the 4th, so pick up can be staggered for safety. Last year's t-shirts sold out, so get your t-shirt early. Call for t-shirt pick up- 650-773-7805. $15, sizes child XS- adult 3X

Unfortunately, the HCA fireworks show, Midway BBQ and games are not possible this year, due to covid precautions, but will be back next year and bigger than ever.

Details for all events can be found in the June issue of the Highlands Lowdown newsletter. We purposely mail the details, to every home in the Highlands, rather than post them to the website, to maintain space at the events for our HCA members. 

The annual Highlands Community Association 4th of July celebration that the Highlands is famous for, is fast approaching. And to make it happen we need help to come from all around the Highlands, and if you can't volunteer this year, consider a donation.

The Highlands 4th of July is a special celebration in our neighborhood and helps define what makes the Highlands a unique place to live. The events began as a way to keep our Highlands neighbors safely at home and off the roads during the holiday. Please find a way to make helping out the community a part of your family's 4th of July tradition.  Go to the links above and pick a job and a time that works for you. You'll love how great it feels to volunteer in your community!

Thanks, and see you on the 4th!


PLEASE NOTE: These events are for residents of the San Mateo Highlands, paid for by dues and donations to the Highlands Community Association and our wonderful local business sponsors. As a Highlands resident, you may bring a guest, but kindly do not place an open invitation on social media. We are at capacity for our events and want to maintain space for Highlands residents to attend. All residents will be mailed a Highlands Lowdown Newsletter in June with a list of events and times. We purposely do not list those on the website.  Former residents are always welcomed guests!

For the safety of all, drones are not allowed to be flown at any HCA event.
