Holiday Lights & Folk Art Display
The village of Bluffton, displays a lighted collection of vintage Christmas folk art on the lawn of Bluffton Presbyterian Church, at 112 N Main St.
Amid towering lighted evergreens, the Ream folk art display turns the downtown business district into a sparkling destination for the month of December.
Farmer Harry Ream and his wife Dorothy started making and displaying Christmas decorations in 1938. In the mid-80s, the Ream family donated 168 wood cutouts to the village. Dozens more have been added by artist Terry Mullenhour.
Families join in the Blaze spirit with holiday decorations including Ream-style cutout figures. The chamber conducts an annual decorating contest with prizes awarded in “Bluffton Bucks.”
