Downtown Oxford was the place to be for holiday fun Friday night as it hosted the annual Soup and Sweet Stroll, organized by the Downtown Development Authority (DDA).

DDA Executive Director Glenn Pape reported 927 plastic spoons were sold to folks so they could sample all of the savory soups prepared and donated by local establishments.

Overall, he was pleased with the event.

“We sold more than we did last year,” Pape said. “We had more businesses participate this year. We had a good crowd. We had perfect weather.”
