Streetscape in process

At the moment, Main Street has two sets of street lights. On the west side the lights appear to be displaced football field lights. On the east side (left) the new street lights are in place. The lights on the west side of Main, if you hadn't noticed, are in place while the streetscape project in underway. They will be soon replaced by lamp posts that carry an 1930s-era light, just like the ones on the east side. Although a bit blurry, this photo was taken a one-eighth of a second with the lens wide open at 4.5 to capture this look.

Christmas garlands going up Nov. 14

When the Main Street Christmas lights go up, the holidays can't be too far behind. Members of the Bluffton Volunteer Fire Department will string Main Street garlands on Saturday morning, Nov. 14, according to Dan Bowden, fire chief.

Bowden said that if a rain date is needed, the garlands will be strung on Saturday, Nov. 21, instead.

Main Street businesses need to place their garlands in front of their business early Saturday morning on Nov. 14 so that the fire department has access to them.
