Main Street Highland Park’s annual Downtown Planting Days are back for two more fun-filled days of downtown beautification! — Thursday May 25, 3 pm – 7 pm — Friday May 26, 11 am – 6 pm   Every May, Main Street Highland Park organizes and sponsors planting days along Raritan and Woodbridge Avenues where volunteers come out to fill over 150 downtown planters with beautiful plants and flowers supplied by Main Street.  Stop by the Main Street Highland Park offices (212 Raritan Ave) and look for Main Street staff *outside* on either day – only during the posted times – to pick up your plants, your planter assignment, and some snacks while supplies last!
