              Annual Downtown HoliDAY OPEN HOUSE

Date: Friday, November 27th
Location: Downtown Blackstone
Time: 6:00-9:00 p.m.

On the Friday after Thanksgiving, Blackstone, Virginia, will hold its 7th Annual Downtown Holiday Open House following the community’s traditional Grand Illumination in the town park.  Attractions included Old Fashion Hay rides, musical entertainment, the famous Bevell’s Hardware Holiday Train Display, and both of the town’s museums, Scwhartz Tavern,  c.1790, and the Robert Thomas Carriage Museum welcomed visitors. 

The idea behind the Holiday Open House is to recreate, as closely as possible, an  atmosphere of the Christmases of yesteryear when life was slower and Christmas shopping was a memorable event rather than a race to find a parking spot and “while they last” bargains.
