Highlander Community Day was an invitation for families and friends to stop by the Highlander neighborhood and see its new developments. In the heart of Highlander is The Accelerator, a 65,000 SF building that houses Creighton University, Metropolitan Community College - North Express, Hardy Coffee Co., Seventy Five North, and The Venue. In the future, the building will also be home to Whispering Roots and a small-scale food hall called Dining Room.
The day-long celebration provided an opportunity for people to visit The Accelerator, take a guided tour of the neighborhood, grub on food from Big Mama’s and Pico, and enjoy a nighttime concert with fireworks. Highlander Community Day was as exciting for us as it was for the little ones who were able to get their faces painted, play putt-putt golf, double-dutch, or jump around the bounce houses.
Moving forward, our goal is to make this day an annual celebration for the community.
Any day of this size, would not be possible without collaboration. Thank you to Dundee Bank, Cox, Omaha Performing Arts, Brinshore Development, First National Bank, and YMCA Butler-Gast + Maple Street for helping us make the day a success.
