From the Executive Director

The Blackstone Chamber is excited to be partnering with Downtown Blackstone, Inc., to prepare for Blackstone's Grand Illumination and Holiday Open House on Friday, November 24th beginning at 6:00 p.m until 8:00 p.m. The evening will begin with the lighting of Seay Park on Main Street by Mayor Billy Coleburn! There will be caroling, refreshments, and a special appearance by Santa!

Immediately following, visitors are invited to continue into beautifully decorated downtown Blackstone to enjoy visiting Blackstone's business and historical district. Bobby Daniel has kindly donated a hay wagon and tractor for rides during the evening. And of course, Bevell's Giant Train Display will be up and running! Additional attractions for the evening will include Tours of Schwartz Tavern and the Robert Thomas Carriage Museum, Southside Area Community Theater Group Christmas play at the Harris Memorial Armory, roasted Chestnuts at the Blackstone Antiques and Crafts Mall, Elves and refreshments at Blackstone Flooring, Carolers in the Town Square, and many holiday specials at numerous businesses! We will update you on further plans as the time draws near. Please let me know if you would like to participate in any way.
