The tour will include a guided walk around the neighborhood, complete with historical trivia (do you know which donut-maker originated in Highland Park?) peppered throughout and conclude with an introduction to Chicken Boy by Amy Inouye, tour guide, gallery owner and mom to Chicken Boy. The tour has an optional visit to the “smokin’” Highland Park car show, where art meets the street.
