Another year for our annual holiday celebration, this past Friday marked the 18th year of Middleburgh’s “Miracleon Main Street”. The Middleburgh Renaissance Arts Council (MRC)founded this event that keeps growing significantly over the years with more things on the streets, and more people joining us from far and wide.
The heart of the event – friends, kids and families, businesses, service clubs, village and town officials were found all coming together to enjoy a shared experience at a special time of year. We continued with good food, good cheer, photos with Santa, dancing, caroling, storytelling, horse drawn wagon rides, live animals, extended store and business hours, are but a few of the festivities that brought Main Street to life.
The weather was cold but pleasant and the beautiful decorations lit up our town even more this year providing a perfect holiday backdrop for our “Miracle”. The MRC wishes to thank all those who helped to make this season wonderful. We also thank our community for joining us in this joyful celebration. You make it all a wonderful Miracle of generous good cheer. Hoping everyone has a Merry Christmas, a Happy and blessed New Year and joyful celebrations of all kinds, whatever you may celebrate!
A contribution sung at our event, Oh Little Town of Bethlehem rewritten by Fr. Peter about Miracle on Main Street night after the floods in 2011 as the Star on the cliff shined on during the recovery not stopping this wondrous night of Miracle on Main Street-
- O Little Town of Middleburgh-your stars still shines so bright.
- Above the valley from the ridge-we see your wondrous light.
- Yet when the darkness threatened-you found a way to rise.
- The hopes and dreams of all the years-shine out through you tonight.
