Miracle on 7th Street 2022

Miracle on 7th StreetIf you attend only one downtown event in Terre Haute, make it Miracle on 7th Street. For our family, Miracle is tradition. We started going when our oldest daughter was just a baby (pictured here!). She’s now twelve!

The coordinators spend an entire year working to make sure it’s an incredibly festive occasion! This post is sponsored as part of our ongoing relationship with the Miracle on 7th Street committee. Read on to see how Miracle on 7th Street can help your family to kick off the holiday season! Stay up to date by following the Miracle on 7th Street facebook page!

Highlights of Miracle on 7th Street 2022

The coordinators say this:
“Miracle on 7th Street (featuring the Light Your Way Parade) is December 2nd & 3rd.
Our committee has been planning diligently for months to bring you Christmas magic in the heart of Downtown Terre Haute! We’re going BIG this year, banking some memories for your family while keeping the Miracle alive- donating back to our local food pantries to keep our most vulnerable fed.”
