Happening This Weekend - 11/16/2018

Just when we thought this weekend was going to be a quiet one. In fact, the opening line for this weekend's edition of the email was going to be: "It may be the last weekend of calm before the holiday madness really kicks in."

And then the snow storm came! Unbelievable. We hope you are safe. But guess what? Main Street Beacon is OPEN! These business owners are fierce. So come on down!

Lambs Hill Bridal Boutique

(near the Dummy Light)
Just before the snow ❄️ fell, we stepped inside of the expanded Lambs Hill Bridal Boutique now that they have expanded to three storefront windows at 1 East Main. Take a look around in our Insta video - and that’s not even all of it! The third room is getting its ceiling done in green grass!
