ADOPT A STREET
PMNA has adopted The Plaza, from Parkwood Avenue to Independence. The Plaza is one of the most traveled roadways in the neighborhood, as well as one of the most beautiful. To keep that balance, we meet quarterly to take a walk from one end to the other, cleaning up trash along the way. Adopt-a-Street meet-ups always include coffee and treats, and all materials needed for the cleanup are provided by PMNA and Keep Charlotte Beautiful. Keep an eye on our calendar page for upcoming clean-up events.
Each year, PMNA helps raise money for important neighborhood initiatives at our Winter Fling and Silent Auction. The theme changes annually, but there's always great music, great beer, great food and a host of fantastic items up for auction. All revenue from the silent auction goes directly to PMNA's general fund, which has helped sustain projects such as our community garden and dog-waste stations. Winter Fling is typically held in mid-February or early March.

Take a look inside some of the most beautifully renovated, historically charming and wonderfully unique homes in Plaza Midwood on our annual Home & Garden Tour. Each year, homeowners open their doors to the public to tour and explore. Our candlelight tour occurs the evening of the first Friday in May, with an all-day tour the first Saturday. Some homes are sponsored by a local business, with tastings, treats and great neighbors to meet. Biking, scooting, and walking between tour locations is encouraged!

MIDWOOD GIVES BACK
Each year, PMNA partners with our friends at Midwood Baptist Church for a neighborhood-wide charity drive. PMNA delivers empty bags to the front door of every home in the neighborhood, then a week later, we’ll be back to collect the bags filled with your donations. All food collections go to Second Harvest Food Bank. We also collect for various other groups, including the Humane Society of Charlotte and Shamrock Elementary School.

CHARLOTTE MARATHON CHEER STATION
CHRISTMAS BALL WORKSHOP & 5K
PMNA wants to ensure the entire neighborhood is sparkling with holiday cheer every December by setting up Santa’s workshop where neighbors can build their own lighted Christmas balls. We have materials and pre-made balls for purchase, but we also have trained experts on hand to help you craft your own. This event precedes our annual “Running of the Balls” 5K under the lights and through the neighborhood.
