[ARCHIVED] City Plans Events for Midland Neighboring Week

September 15, 2023 – As the community comes together to celebrate Midland Neighboring Week September 24 – 30 several City of Midland departments invite residents to join in on the fun with several family-friendly, free activities and events. 

Experience our community in a fun way – and win prizes! – as Midland Parks and Recreation invites residents on a Neighbor Chase scavenger hunt from September 25 – October 8. Sleuths can download the free Eventzee app (use code mprneighbor23) on a mobile device to receive their instructions and participate in photo, video, quiz, and GPS-related challenges and more! All participants who complete the scavenger hunt will receive a prize. For more information, visit  

On Wednesday, September 27, visit the Grace A. Dow Memorial Library from 5:30 – 7 p.m. for a unique event: Floats with Goats! Enjoy Faygo floats created by celebrity scoopers, as well as a petting zoo, yard games, and fun for the family. Cones of animal feed will be available to purchase for $1 and carrots will be available for $3 (cash only, please). Food trucks will also be on hand with food for purchase. Sponsored by Great Lakes Bay Orthodontics of Midland and Cottage Creamery. 

Midland Police Department will host a free family movie night at the Grace A. Dow Memorial Library Auditorium on Friday, September 29 at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and registration is not required. Popcorn will be provided courtesy of Early Head Start at Mid-Michigan Community Action. The movie title can’t be advertised due to copyright laws, but here’s a hint: An unlikely animal friendship leads to the uncovering of a citywide conspiracy! Attendees are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item to donate in support of the Midland County Emergency Food Pantry. 

Midland Neighboring Week is a weeklong, citywide celebration dedicated to promoting community wellbeing and belonging in Midland. While the initiative is currently led by the Cultural Awareness Coalition of the Midland Area Community Foundation, every individual and organization is encouraged to participate in their own way!
