The Durant Area Chamber of Commerce and stores lining North Second Avenue in Durant hosted a Christmas in July block party Saturday.
The party began with a fashion show displaying clothing that can be bought in the Second Avenue shops. Entertainment for the evening consisted of a series of dances performed by the Spirit Champ Cheer and Dance Studio.
The hot-dog meals served for $5 came with a unique twist. Each meal came with the chance to win a weekend at the Choctaw Casino Resort and a shopping spree on North Second Avenue.
Proceeds from Saturday’s event go toward the Dashing to Durant project this upcoming holiday season.
With lights already secured for trees lining Main Street, funding is going to Market Square lighting, wreaths and holiday entertainment.
