The celebration, sponsored by the Greater Blairstown Business Association (GBBA), will feature over 30 crafters, vendors, businesses and organizations. Many unique items will be available like original art, handmade wreaths, and sparkling jewelry. Vendors like Tastefully Simple, Origami Owl, Jamberry and Perfectly Posh will also offer fun gift ideas for shoppers. All of the shops along the street will be open to welcome families with holiday cheer and special surprises.
Children will enjoy free activities offered by local camps, non-profits and educational groups. Visit Re/Max's annual Winter Wonderland display at 8 Main Street to meet your favorite Christmas characters. Take a moment to enjoy a free cup of apple cider or hot cocoa, get a glitter tattoo or sing along with Girl Scouts as they carol in the village.
The day will culminate in a visit from Santa and his friends at 3:30 pm followed by the official tree-lighting ceremony at 31 Main Street. Then the Blair Academy Singers will perform holiday favorites for the crowd. Local restaurants Gourmet Gallery, Post Time Pub and The Blairstown Inn will all be open for dinner, so the fun can continue.
Businesses all along Main Street will be collecting non-perishable food items for the First Presbyterian Outreach Center Food Bank. Visitors are also asked to bring new, unwrapped toys for Toys for Tots.
“Jingle on Main is one of the highlights of the year in Blairstown,” said newly elected GBBA President and Chair, Sandra Roberts. “It's a great opportunity for the community to support our local businesses and non-profit organizations while celebrating together.”
