Fun, food, parade: Boydton Days ahead / October 21, 2015

The annual Boydton Day has now become Boydton Days — three days of family fun and tradition. Using this year’s theme The Common Thread That Binds Us All Together, the 2015 committee has put together a weekend of entertainment, food, a parade and more, beginning Friday, Oct. 30 through Sunday Nov. 1 — all centered in Courthouse Square in Boydton.

This year’s food offerings will feature Boydton’s Volunteer Fire Department’s Brunswick stew and apple sauce, Boydton Life Station’s barbeque and so much more. Pies, cakes, fish sandwiches, pizza and funnel cakes are just the beginning. Dozens of delicious sites will be selling food to the hundreds and hundreds of folks lining the streets of Boydton.

Vendors will offer clothing, accessories, delightful scents, handmade crafts, flags, local honey, auto accessories and more. Bank Street will be lined with craftspeople who will demonstrate their skills and sell their wares.

The Annual Vesper Service will be Friday, Oct. 30 at 7 p.m. at the Old Presbyterian Meeting House. A Community Church Service is slated for Sunday, Nov. 1 at 9:30 a.m. at the Old Elementary School Auditorium (Bingo Hall). All events are free and open to the public.

The annual parade kicks off at 10 a.m. and will be led by Jackie “Creampuff” Ketchum, this year’s Grand Marshal. Anyone planning to march in the parade should be at the starting point, at the Boydton School, to line up at 9 a.m.

Entertainment for the day will feature something for everyone with two stages. On the Main stage will be “Sanctified Power” at 11 a.m., “Forte” at noon, “Quiet Storm” at 1 p.m., “Exodus” from Liberty University at 2 p.m. and “For a Season” at 3 p.m. On the second stage “Homegrown Bluegrass” will kick of this venue at 11:15 a.m. and a host of local artists will take the stage throughout the afternoon. Bring your chairs and your friends and come for a day long experience.

Vendor applications are available at and at Boydton Town Hall.
