“We’re having an open house for the downtown,” announced Carol Thompson at Monday’s Belleville City Council meeting in explaining the Saturday, Nov. 13 party on Main Street.
She was speaking on behalf of the Belleville Downtown Development Authority.
“We’ve come through on the other side … It looks wonderful, is wonderful,” Thompson said of the completed Main Street project.
Main Street had opened fully to traffic and parking earlier Monday. On Nov. 13, it will be closed again (10 a.m. to 3 p.m.), but this time for a celebration.
She said the plan is to have a big open house downtown, with businesses inviting people in.
She said there will inflatables for the children, music, dancing in the street, bike races, and shopping. The Harvest Time Bingo game drawing will take place for a Wii Fit and there will be sidewalk chalk drawing, street performers, and treats.
“It’s been restricted for the last months and now it’s open,” Thompson said.
