Osawatomie City Hall

OSAWATOMIE - A surge in COVID-19 cases in Miami County and throughout the region has forced the city of Osawatomie and the Osawatomie Chamber of Commerce to transition their Miracle on Main Street event to an online/digital format, the city announced Tuesday, Nov. 24. 

Organizers said Tuesday afternoon they would still like to have the Mayor’s Christmas Tree Lighting, the announcement of the Citizen of the Year, and free socially distanced Santa photos, but most of the other pieces of the Dec. 5 event are being tabled until next year.

"We’re very disappointed by this, of course, but the safety of our community comes first," a representative of the city said in an email.

Organizers of the joint city-chamber event said they are still working out the online/digital transition, and details for the event will be announced on the city and chamber websites and social media outlets as soon as they are finalized.
