Middnight on Main 2012 New Year's Eve festival (http://www.middnight.org) was a terrific family-friendly event, well organized and attended, with many excellent performances and happenings. Congratulations and thank you to Community Health Center, all of the sponsors, vendors, sites, volunteers, staff and performers. Here are a few photos from some of the many events on and around Main Street in Middletown tonight (since this only covers a fraction of all that was going on, I hope others can post their accounts and photos).
