Members of the Concerned Citizens of Atmore are hoping for a record turn-out for this year's Unity in the Community Day on June 9.
Pat Mason, CCA member and one of the organizers, said she would like to see the day cross color lines.
The day will feature music by the New Pleasant Hill Praise Team, The Knight Singers, Holy Ghost Soldiers, El Bethel Angels of Praise, Delivery Ministries Praise Team, the Escambia County Middle School Inspirational Choir and The Thomas Singers.
Activities will include a Beautiful Baby contest, a moonwalk, face painting, arts and crafts, hot roasted peanuts, cotton candy, a dunking booth, food and a silent auction for a car.
Unity Day starts at 9 a.m. with the MLK Little League parade. Opening ceremonies are at 10 a.m., at Houston Avery Park. The last activity of the day – entertainment – begins at 4:25 and continues into the night.
Concerned Citizens of Atmore's mission is "to strive for and maintain unity in the family, community, nation and race."
