Hundreds of Highland Lakes residents turned out last Saturday for the annual Highland Lakes Family Day.

Events also included a quadrathlon, triathlon, sandcastle building, wacky relay races, a bicycle decorating parade, a baby parade, and much more.

The weather behaved long enough so that at the end of the day their fireworks display went off without a hitch and shook Wawayanda Mountain. Each year lakefront homeowners on the main lake invite their friends, neighbors, and family to enjoy the nighttime display from their docks, decks, and boats.
