School is Back in Session

We hope everyone enjoyed the sweet summertime!

Highlands County School District began the new 2021-22 term on

August 10 th . Before you know it, Christmas will be here!

We are thankful we got to see familiar faces and meet some new

ones at the 30 th Annual Caladium festival. The temperature may

have been hot but that didn’t stop the visitors or participants! With

one of the largest turnouts of both in years. We filed the streets with

vendors of crafts, and specialty merchandise as well as food and

some of the best entertainment around! Both parks were bustling

and busy Saturday as we also held the Annual Car & Bike Show, 105

cars from all over, music, food and raffles means something for

everyone!

We would like to thank each person who volunteered and gave of

their time to make this year’s festival such a success. We could not

do this without every one of you! Planning for 2022 has already

started, so mark your calendars for July 29-31 as we celebrate

another year of our beautiful Caladiums and beloved town.

Stay cool, stay hydrated, and remember to shop local, eat local, and

drink local.
