Celebrate at Fridayfest at Highview Park June 29
Go to a free concert in the park this June, and go enjoy local food and fun with the whole family. Fridayfest at Highview Park is one of the best ways to celebrate one of the very best days of the week.
Highview Park is a beautiful place to visit even when there isn't a free concert happening. This 40-acre park has a playground for the kids and multiple athletic fields, including a tennis court. There's a large picnic area with grills, and walking paths to take you through the natural scenery. The park is open daily from 6 am to 11 pm. And during Fridayfest, this is the place you want to be.
From 6 to 10 pm, Highview Park will come alive with live music for the whole family to enjoy. Local vendors will have lots of food available to purchase. This event is free and open to everyone. Feel free to bring a blanket or chair with you and pick a spot to sit out and relax while the music plays. The park is at 201 Outer Loop in the Okolona community. This neighborhood is known for its shopping, its restaurants, and for being a great family community.
