Thank you for visiting the Village of Bluffton website. We hope you'll find valuable information in the website about life in Bluffton, Ohio.
Village service crews have been busy preparing for our next season and the weather that won't be far behind. Crews have flushed every fire hydrant and drained them to reduce the likelihood of freezing. Other crews are busy picking up leaves from the side of the street. The swimming pool is undergoing a facial this fall with a complete sanding and painting program being done by contractors.
In the next few days the holiday season will begin to come to life with the annual hanging of lights and yard ornaments on the lawn of the Presbyterian church. Bluffton's nightly population will undoubtedly increase as people from near and far come to enjoy the festive atmosphere Bluffton has to offer. It may take a few extra moments to travel village streets as cars tend to drive more slowly as the occupants take in the sights and sounds.
Bluffton will roll out the welcome mat Saturday, November 28, for the annual Blaze of Lights sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce. The holiday parade starts at 5:00 pm with the tree lighting to take place shortly after the parade concludes. The lights will be on nightly from November 2 through the first week or so of January (depending on the weather).
