Area residents have been participating in a multitude of holiday activities in Midtown. A health fair was held Dec. 1 at Daisy Stocking Park followed by the first tree lighting later that evening. On Saturday, Dec. 8, a Christmas parade was held through the heart of Midtown consisting of area bands, churches and community organizations with floats, marching units and cars.
A step show is scheduled Dec. 15 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Daisy Stocking Park.
This event will highlight local Greek sororities and fraternities as well as local high school and community talent. Local vendors will be invited to set up in the park to provide a variety of cultural food and merchandise.
The local chapter of the National Pan-Hellenic Council of Greek Sororities and Fraternities is assisting with this event, which is open to the public for free.
Local business owners and residents, who decorated their establishments and homes in the holiday spirit using guidelines set by a list of judges, will receive recognition and awards at the Dec. 19 city commission meeting.
