Beacon Chamber of Commerce
The Car Show is coming! A Little Beacon Blog has covered it before, so read up and get a fresh feel for which cars will be in town, and see which new ones you'll find. One October it snowed on the Car Show. This year, will you be drinking hot cocoa? Or an iced lemonade? You'll know when you stroll down the middle of Main Street next weekend.


BeaconArts is a proud sponsor of the "Open To The Sky: Beacon Sukkah Project" happening right now at Polhill Park (across from Bank Square Coffee). A sukkah is a house that gives no shelter, a house that parodies the idea of security. It's a Jewish sand mandala of a building, open to the sky and used for seven days around the time of the fall harvest and then dismantled. It's rickety and tenuous, creating the illusion of permanence and highlighting the impermanence of everything. This year, Open to the Sky invites creative exploration of The Space Between perceived opposites. It provides time and space to press pause on transitions and connections; to move around in the openings between ideas or states of being. Open from October 4-12, 2017.
