Several members of the Garden City Business Alliance attended the ribbon cutting ceremony for Key Nutrition on December 9th. They presented owner Barb Kane with a basket from GCBA member Elaine Salter, owner of the Basket Club.
Garden City’s 2017 Spooktacular Trunk or Treat was a roaring success as more than 2,000 trick or treaters and their parents thronged to the Towne Center parking lot on Thursday, October 26.
It was our largest one yet with 2500+ kids and at least 4000 total with parents, with 64 trunks (up from last year’s 59).
The event was co-hosted by the Garden City Downtown Development Authority and the Garden City Business Alliance.

The annual Garden City tree lighting always draws a crowd and the 2015 version didn’t disappoint. Town leaders, local notables, and plenty of people from the community all showed up for the occasion. There was hot chocolate with marshmallows, a Christmas carol sing-along with Pastor Wayne Parker and the Merriman Road Baptist Church choir, a visit from Santa Claus, and, of course, the lighting of the tree. As the lights from the tree came ablaze, so did the Christmas lights up and down Ford Road and Middlebelt Road. See all of the photos.
