Boydton Day returns this Saturday

SoVaNow.com / October 23, 2013
Where can you buy a variety of fall bulbs, authentic Thai food, a hand-blown glass pumpkin, a homemade coconut pie and a delicious funnel cake — all in one place? Check out Courthouse Square in Boydton on Saturday, October 26, and you will find all this and more.

The 37th annual Boydton Day is ready to go with more than 60 vendors signed up to offer their wares. In addition, there will be a Community Yard Sale at the library, entertainment by the Arise Praise Band and Sanctified Power and a huge parade to delight young, the old and in between. Vendors open at 10:00 a.m. and will be selling until 4:00 p.m. on Madison, Washington, Jefferson and Bank Streets.

Hosted by the Boydton Ruritan Club, Boydton Day has been offering fun, entertainment and food for everyone for 37 years. As a new addition to the day, the Ruritans will be selling a variety of fall bulbs — a bag of 20 bulbs for $10. Proceeds for the sale will help fund the annual scholarships given to two local students. Bulbs being sold include hyacinth, purple drum sticks, anemone, fox trot tulips, Dutch iris mixture and stripped squill.

Official sponsors for Boydton Day, besides the Ruritans, are Citizens Community Bank (CCB). Boydton Volunteer Fire Department, First Citizens Bank and the Boydton Life Station.

Vendors interested in participating need to contact the Boydton Day Committee immediately. A vendor application can be found at http://www.boydton.org, at Town Hall or by calling Will or Donna Ober at 434-738-7834. Those wishing to march in the parade need to be ready to line up at the Boydton School on Madison Street, by 10:00 a.m. on Saturday. The annual Vesper service will be held on Friday evening at 6:00 p.m. in the Old Boydton Presbyterian Church and is open to the public.
