Midtown’s first Community Unity Festival draws hundreds to park
FROM STAFF REPORTS
Hundreds turned out Aug. 17 for live music, food and fun for Midtown’s first Community Unity Festival at Daisy Stocking Park.
Hosted by Daytona Beach Commissioner Paula Reed, the festival was designed to give residents a family-friendly venue and age-appropriate activities to celebrate summer’s end in the heart of Daytona Beach.
“As a new commissioner, I wanted to host a fun event where all residents would feel welcomed and embrace our great community. I also wanted to raise money for the Rose Marie Bryon Center. They do so much for the children in our community, and I want them to know how much I appreciate their service,” Reed said.
The Community Unity Festival was sponsored by PepsiCo, Bethune-Cookman University, AFSCME, Vitas, Brown & Brown Insurance, and the City of Daytona Beach.
