Safety Demonstrations, children’s programs, music and food are just a few of the highlights of the Fourth Annual Festival in the Highlands.

“This festival is just one of many fun celebrations that make Metro Louisville a great place to be this summer time,” says Councilman Tom Owen (D) 8. “I want to encourage everyone to come out and see yet another example of a fine caring neighborhood that we are fortunate to have in this city.”

The Festival will be held at Atherton High School from 11:00am to 4:00pm on Saturday, July 26th rain or shine. Atherton is located at 3000 Dundee Road.

Louisville Metro Police will sponsor a bike safety program. Louisville Fire and Rescue will offer fire safety information. The Louisville Red Cross will provide Health and Safety Disaster Preparedness Information.

“I am pleased that the Red Cross Bloodmobile will also be on hand to take donations,” says Owen. “Summertime is a critical time when our area’s blood supply tends to dwindle. This would be a great way to help others.”

Other highlights of the Festival include clowns, free face painting and a small vendor market. Alley Cat Advocates and Raptor Rehab will also have information on hand concern their programs from animals.

CASA, Court Appointed Special Advocates, will also be on hand with information about their programs.

It is not too late to participate in this year’s festival. To sign up, or for more information, about participating in the Fourth Annual Festival in the Upper Highlands, contact Mike Kolb at 452-6057.
