TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — “Miracle on 7th Street,” a downtown Terre Haute holiday tradition, is set to take place this weekend.

Several events are planned for the celebration for people of all ages, including a tree lighting ceremony, taking pictures with the Grinch, riding the Christmas train and shopping a variety of vendors.

The event helps to raise money for area food banks. Organizers said over the last 13 years, the event has raised $56,000 and that the event is a lot of fun.

“It’s a happy event,” Terry Hogan, event director, said. “We just wanted to get people out and we missed having it last year but we’re working on it.”

“We’re just excited to have everyone come back downtown and celebrate the holidays and really make this a family event,” Marla Flowers, secretary treasurer, said.

“Miracle on 7th Street” is this from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. The parade is at 6 p.m. at Saturday.
