HIGHLANDS – One of the largest crowds in recent years turned out last Saturday for the 63rd Annual Jamboree Parade, Pageant and Fair. In spite of the fact that the event list had trimmed off the 5K Run/ Walk, and the Classic Car Show, nevertheless the Little Mr. and Miss Highlands show, the food booths, and crafts booths remained very popular all day.

The Fair followed the parade at 10 am, which also had a larger number of units, some with great imagination for the theme: “Celebrate Highlands.”

Next Saturday the Highlands Horizons will hold the Miss Highlands Pageant at the Junior School.
