There’s a wedding in Marianna next Monday.
Everyone is invited to celebrate the commitment ceremony between the city of Marianna and Jackson County.
‘Marry Marianna’ is the kick off event for a week-long activity involving the city and county.
With the development of the new K-8 school on the north end of town, Marianna officials fear for the businesses located on the west end where the Marianna Middle School is currently located.
So they reached out for help. In 2016, Marianna submitted an application to the American Planning Association for an assistance team to come visit and help the community grow.
“This is a great opportunity for citizens to come out and tell the team members what they’d like to see in the city,” said Kay Dennis, Municipal Development Director.
At the Monday event there will be wedding cake, live entertainment, vendors, and other fun exhibits for the entire family.
‘Marry Marianna’ will be held at Madison Street Park from 4-8 PM, on Monday, February 26.
