The ‘Unity in the Community Flash Mob’ will take place at Anderson Park on the Carthage Square on Tuesday, June 30 at 5 p.m.

“My friend Tami Bridwell, she and I have just kind of had this heart to come together as a community, just to put some unity back into Carthage with everything that’s going on in the nation with the COVID-19 and kind of the riots and looting that we’re seeing,” said Vanessa Douglass, one of the organizers. “We just want to stand together as a community and just say that we are proud to be Carthaginians and that we are together in all of this, so that we’re just not divided but we’re united.”

Douglass encourages the community come out at 5 p.m. and mingle, with social distancing in mind.

“They can visit, they can play the chess board out there. if they want to bring kites, just kind of whatever, if they want to bring a picnic, that’s fine too,” she said.

Dancing starts at 5:30 p.m. An instructional video is available on the Carthage Texas Main Street Facebook page.

“We have two songs that we’ve got choreographed for everybody to just kind of have fun with and do, and then afterwards everyone’s welcome to just continue to stay and hang out, or they can leave,” Douglass said. “It’s up to them. We may play a little of music afterwards just to people if they want to keep on going.”
