On Saturday, July 13, the public is invited to “Turn Myrtle Purple,” an event that includes a walk beginning at 8 a.m. through 6 p.m. The event will be held at Grand Park in the Market Common. A $10 donation is required to participate in the walk.
Following the walk, there will be giant inflatable slides, face-painting, music and a dunking booth, where attendees can dunk local police and firefighters. Food from Chick-fil-A will be sold during the event for anyone looking to grab-a-bite.
