Be sure to stop by the park in Highgate Center and pick up the best BBQ chicken meal around for only $10 (meal consists of 1/2 chicken, coleslaw, roll, pickle, baked potato & milk). There will also be other festivities happening in the park for Highgate’s Annual Memorial Day celebration, so be sure to plan on staying around for a bit! The Annual HVFD Auction will follow the Memorial Day Parade, which will starts promptly at 1pm and travels through the center of town.
