Miracle on Main Street
“Miracle on Main Street,” from 5:30pm to 8:30pm this Friday, Dec 12, has been a tradition in the village of Middleburgh for more than 10 years. It is a street festival that encourages people to come out and enjoy the activities of the season — roasted chestnuts, horse-drawn wagon rides, Sparky & the Grinch from the fire dept, caroling at the library, and stores open later hours for shopping, all sponsored by the Middleburgh Renaissance Council.
Part of the miracle this year is the opening of new businesses. The Olde Corner Store from Gallupville, has been in the process of coming here for more than 2 years. The owner, Joy Heckman, offers deli products, a variety of grocery products, spices, teas, organic and bulk items. With a soft opening recently, the official ribbon cutting will be held just prior to the Miracle on Main Street events.
