Blowing Rock Parade Time to Change

The Blowing Rock Town Council voted to move Holiday Parade times from 2:00 pm to 10:00 am starting with the July 4th parade.

Parking on Main Street will not be available until 11:00 am or whenever the parade is over, whichever is first.

The Shriners' Parade on June 6th will remain at the scheduled 2:00 pm time.

Thank you to those who responded to the survey that the TDA sent out. It is important for you to respond to the surveys that are sent to you otherwise, your voice may not be heard.
