Highlands Community Association

                     4th of July 2024 Parade theme is:

Highlands OHANA!

The Highlands Community is Family! Ohana is Hawaiian for family, including neighbors that are like family. The tradition of the 4th of July celebrations in the Highlands brings us all together each year.  Highlands Community Association will organize the 68th Annual 4th of July celebrations. Unfortunately, there will NOT be the Annual HCA Fireworks show this year, due to ongoing construction at the school.

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 soon to celebrate Independence Day!


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.
