Thank you for visiting the Village of Bluffton website. We hope you'll find valuable information in the website about life in Bluffton, Ohio.
The holiday season is in full swing in Bluffton. Holiday shoppers can be seen visiting the many storefronts lining Main Street and elsewhere around town. The power companies have brought in extra capacity to handle the load created by the many festive lights that can be found on many homes on just about any street in town. 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.
The lights will be on nightly from November 2 through the first week or so of January (depending on the weather).
While we are in the holiday spirit, it's hard to believe we are only 9 or so months away from the 2016 National Night Out event. This annual event brings the community together with emergency services to celebrate a night of family friendly activities. New this year is the ability for supporters to make a tax-deductible donation dedicated to the National Night Out (NNO) events. The Chamber of Commerce has pledged to hold the fireworks display at the end of the night. So the Village has agreed to create a fund to accept donations for the purposes of supporting the NNO events.
Donations made to the Village of Bluffton can be earmarked for NNO. The fund will be used to pay for expenses associated with the event. All contributors will receive a letter indicating their tax-deductible donation.
We all hope you and your family have a safe, healthy, and happy holiday season!
