Blackstone Heritage Corridor Presents 4th Annual GO!

Aug 30, 2018 06:00AM
Whitinsville, Mass. - Go pick pumpkins at an alpaca farm, go geocaching in a historic park, go earn a Junior Ranger badge and go explore the Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor.

With more nearly 100 events to choose from, Blackstone Heritage Corridor, Inc. (BHC) proudly presents its 4th annual GO! program this September, highlighting the Blackstone River Valley as a destination for family fun and exploration.

This year’s GO! program offers guided walks and paddles, bike and museum tours, festivals and other family-friendly events. GO! 2018 is generously sponsored by UniBank, Navigant Credit Union and Southwick’s Zoo.

Some of the free experiences range from a behind-the-scenes tour at Vaillancourt Folk Art, an Esmond Mill Blanket Show at the Smith-Appleby House, a Speakeasy Tour at the Hotel Vernon, and a guided tour of indigenous ceremonial stone landscapes in Upton, MA.
Most GO! experiences are free while some events do charge a fee, as noted in the program. GO! activities are both indoors and outdoors, and there is something for every generation to enjoy!
