The Highlands Holiday Hop is a daylong event in the Town of Highlands consisting of several “Hop Spots” where people can stop by and get their Hop Spot Card stamped. After someone visits every Hop Spot and their card is completely stamped, it can be entered into a raffle for prizes!

Of course, it’s not just about getting those stamps.

It’s about community...

We’re encouraging people to actively support the Highlands economy by shopping locally this holiday season. Many entrepreneurs are our family members, friends and neighbors! Plus, we encourage support for the groups and organizations working for the betterment of the community. There are many selfless residents dedicating their time and personal resources to making the Town of Highlands the special place that it is!

...and enjoying the festivities!

In addition to promoting local businesses, organizations and community groups, the Highlands Holiday Hop will feature several family-friendly activities throughout the day!
