By ROD LEE
For many of us, the month of March means the Blackstone Valley Chamber of Commerce’s annual Home & Community Expo, which boasts all of the trappings and trimmings offered by a lively and cherished indoor neighborhood marketplace.
The 23rd annual edition of the Expo will take place on Saturday, March 25th in the Northbridge High School Field House at 427 Linwood Ave. in Whitinsville.
Many activities will be crammed into the four hours being set aside for the production, which starts at 10:00 a.m. and ends at 2:00 p.m. It will be an opportunity for George Simmons to showcase the high school as a perfect venue for the Expo. Mr. Simmons is in charge of buildings and grounds for NHS.
UniBank is presenting sponsor.
From mid-morning until mid-afternoon, Linwood Avenue and the parking lots at NHS will be crammed with individuals and families, all making their way into the field house to check out businesses’ and nonprofits’ exhibitor booths, the “Best of the Valley” Chowder Fest, fare from area restaurants, free goodies, networking, music and entertainment, demos, mascots and a scavenger hunt for “The Golden Egg.”
Attendees are invited to bring their favorite chowder recipe to the Expo for consideration for the 2023 People’s Choice and 2023 Judge’s Choice awards.
Free tickets can be downloaded at www.blackstonevalley.org/events. Admission is free with a non-perishable food item to benefit the Peace of Bread food bank. Entry is $3 otherwise.
