Holiday Hoopla in Highland Park
That magic feeling, along with elections, city council initiatives, controversial films and Thanksgiving bliss, came to Highland Park this week.
The holidays are here in Highland Park after the city was decked out in its festive best at last Sunday's tree lighting. As we got closer to Thanksgiving, Patch gave you some ideas to make that Thanksgiving feast extra special — Highland Park style.
And speaking of breaking bread, an interfaith Thanksgiving service was held at the Lakefront Congregation for Reform Judaism Wednesday evening for all people of faith.
Maxwell Wilson reviewed the controversial film "Kike Like Me" which tackled complex perceptions of Jews internationally that screened recently at the North Suburban Chabad and Samantha Nelson took a close-up look at the local Italian eatery, Bella Via.
Patch started to give you the real breakdown of the upcoming city elections next April and took a look at some mayoral candidates. We also heard from supporters of Park District Board members Cal Bernstein and Elaine Waxman.
The District 112 Caucus is looking forward to endorsing new candidates for the school board next week and the Highland Park Giants' basketball team looks forward to their upcoming season.
Take a look at some photos from the week that was.
