Downtown West Newton Inc. presents Miracle on Main Street

“A Dickens Village” is the theme for Downtown West Newton Inc.’s 2014 Miracle on Main Street from 3-8:30 p.m. Saturday.

The 13th annual holiday event will feature plenty of food, crafts and gift drawings as well as entertainment to delight all ages. Craft shows will be housed at the West Newton Senior Center, the corner of East Main and Water streets; United Presbyterian Church, Main and Third streets; and First United Methodist Church, 109 N. Second St.; plus at sidewalk vendors on Main Street and Second Street.

The aroma of food will fill the air from the many food vendors located on Main and Second streets. Visitors can also satisfy their appetite at local restaurants and bakeries, plus the Moose and First United Methodist Church.

West Newton Station, on Collinsburg Road at the trail, is planning an open house with cookies and holiday items. Simeral Square will be the site of many children’s activities including Holly Jolly Balloons, Colored Hair Extensions by Kelly (nominal fee), story time with Mrs. Claus, cookie decorating (for children 12 and younger), games and prizes.

Take time to stroll the downtown area to take it all in and not miss a thing.

Visitors who spend at least $5 with any participating merchant will be eligible for a free keepsake, a glass ornament hand-painted by local artist LaVerne Weaver. The first 100 customers to redeem their certificate at the DWNI table in Le Grande Banquet Facility will receive an ornament. There will also be commemorative sweatshirts and the limited edition historical West Newton 2015 calendar for sale at the DWNI table.

Le Grande is also the place for the mega-gift basket raffle, the holiday lottery tree and 50/50 raffle.

Let Miracle on Main Street instill and nurture the holiday spirit. Support DWNI and all its efforts in by arriving early and staying late.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
