And the OHB doubles down on its commitment to provide family fun to the Lake Highlands ‘hood on the regular, as they host Family Day Sunday, April 10, benefiting the Lake Highlands YMCA, another of the fun “give back” events filling up the new Lake Highlands business’ calendar.

Family Day runs from 3-7 p.m. Sunday, with food, beer, sodas, a balloon artist, games and more. You’ll find Oak Highlands Brewery at 10484 Brockwood near Plano Road.
