The Collinsville Main Street Community Association is excited to announce a weekend of Holiday Happenings, Friday and Saturday, November 30 – December 1. Kick off the weekend by joining Santa at the Township Office located at 307 E Main Street on Friday evening at 6pm for the annual Town Tree Lighting. Attendees are encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy for Toys for Tots.
On Saturday, stroll Main Street where Santa and his reindeer can be found, take a free wagon ride, and stop in the many local businesses that have great holiday shopping specials.
Finish the weekend with the Holiday House Tour on Saturday from 2pm – 8pm where attendees can experience some of Collinsville’s finest festively decorated homes. There are nine stops on this year’s tour. Tickets are $10 and available in advance at Ashmann’s Prescription Pharmacy, the Collinsville Chamber of Commerce, the CounterTop Shop, and the Flower Basket.
Tickets may also be purchased the day of the event at the the first stop on the tour, the Blum House. The Blum House is one of Collinsville’s most notable historic landmark homes. The stately, two-story home was built by the internationally-known Blum Bell Factory founder J. Henry Blum circa 1906 and is located at 414 West Main Street. Here participants will pick up their informational packet before embarking on the self-guided tour.
Proceeds from the event benefit the Collinsville High School Student Council and tickets may also be purchased form a Student Council member.
