Downtown Happenings is typically a bi-weekly e-newsletter containing articles and information about what is going on in the Downtown Midland businesses, events, and more. Currently, Downtown Happenings is issued on a weekly basis on Thursdays at 12:00 noon.

For February, March and April we are moving to a monthly newsletter to see if that works better for our buinesses and customers. We will decide in April if we will go back to a bi-weekly newsletter, or stay a monthly newsletter. Stay tuned!
