The Downtown Boone Development Associations mission in part is to promote the historic preservation, protection and use of Boone's traditional downtown area, including the area's commercial, civic, and religious enterprises and residences. To encourage property owners to maintain, improve, and beautify downtown properties. We currently host 16 promotional events and activities annually, including First Friday Art Crawls, The Easter EGGstravaganza, Downtown Boone BOO!!, the annual Christmas and July 4th parades.
This Friday, December 6th is the last Downtown Boone First Friday of 2013. The Jones House Community Center is excited to have local artist Joe Miller in the main gallery, and the ASU Public History Department's exhibit "Stories of King St. Through Time" in the upstairs galleries. Joe Miller will also be signing his holiday themed children's book, "One Night, Two Moons." Come out and enjoy the fun in Downtown Boone!
