2018 Christmas Tours – Results!
The BCA Board of Directors is extremely pleased with the results of our “Christmas in the Country” fundraiser. As a fundraiser, it was very successful, with more than 500 tickets sold! We had presold about 350 tickets, but the gorgeous weather brought out more “tourists” on Saturday and Sunday. We actually sold more tickets on Sunday than Saturday, probably because the word got out that the tour was really exceptional. The street was full of visitors enjoying the village homes decorated for the season.
Members of the Rockbridge Choral Society strolled the streets both days and provided Christmas music for the crowds. Most folks stopped by the Nicholas Springs Tavern for a cup of cider and cookies. The Museum was open and offered shopping opportunities. Nearby special activities included the Open Barn at Ridge Valley Alpacas, music at New Providence, and children’s violin performances at Asbury Church.
The pictures above give you just a glimpse of what went on at the tour (in addition to the open houses). This great weekend would never have been possible without our many, many volunteers. There was an amazing sense of volunteerism exhibited by the entire Brownsburg community. Our best guess is that more than 80 community members volunteered in some way. This many individuals combining their talents and time to make a community event a success is really remarkable.
2018 Halloween in Brownsburg!
Every Halloween tiny ghouls and goblins roam the streets in search of treats…no tricks, these costumed characters are are way too cute for tricks.
