The Historic French Creek District ~ in The Heart of Avon
The French Creek Foundation, dba French Creek Development Association (FCDA), is dedicated to improving and promoting the downtown area known as the French Creek District. It is this core area, primarily along Detroit Road from French Creek Road to W.Middleton Drive, that creates the image for all of Avon - as the banners on utility poles state: "French Creek District is the Heart of Avon".
Over the years, FCDA has implemented improvements such as the Gazebo and the adjacent park, The Centennial Plaza with the cast iron clock, the signage "ball" and plaza at the entrance to the Little League fields and other improvements. We also provide the flowers that are installed in the summer and the holiday wreaths in the winter on the utility poles along Detroit Road.
The FCDA organizes the "Easter Breakfast and Egg Hunt" in the spring and the "Fall-into-Avon" festival in September. Coming up is the traditional holiday "Candlelite Walk" with merchant events on December 5th through 8th.
Candlelite Walk 2013:The merchants in the area will have special sales. The "Winter Wine Walk" will take place on Thursday and Friday evenings ($10 tickets are available at participating merchants). On Saturday Santa will arrive at the Olde Avon Village at about 4:30 pm for photos with the children while the parade assembles to depart at five for the gazebo. There, the holiday tree will be lit after more caroling by the school choir. At Avon Isle (across from Bucks Hardware) the model train show will be in progress from 2 to 7 pm and "Santa Shop", organized by Home Depot, will be on from 2 to 4:30 pm. Children can make gifts for parents there or they can make bracelets with craft advisers. The Gingerbread Contest, judged by Holly Kennedy of Cupcake Wishes and Roberta Walker of Vintage House Cafe, will be going on - see "Upcoming Events" tab for more information and forms.
Santa and the tree lighting events on Dec 7th are provided to the community by French Creek Development Association and the event sponsors at no cost. The event sponsors this year are:
