On Saturday, November 1, 2014 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm, Believe in Bristol will host the 10th Annual From The Top Down Loft Tour in Historic Downtown Bristol. In honor of the 10th anniversary, Believe in Bristol is celebrating with a little birthday party; each loft tour ticket purchased will put you in the drawing for fun giveaways and everyone gets to enjoy a birthday cupcake! The Bristol Historical Association will also be participating by hosting an exhibit of historic pictures all based in downtown Bristol.

Each loft has its own unique style and history. Bristolians and visitors alike enjoy strolling up and down State Street and getting a feel for downtown living. The downtown dwellers are their own community, hosting events and participating in a neighborhood watch program. Believe in Bristol works on changing the lofts for viewing annually so it’s never the same tour year after year.

Pick your tickets up on Saturday, November 1st, starting at noon at the Believe in Bristol office located at 36 Moore Street, Bristol, VA or call in advance and put your name on the will-call list. Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 day of event.

Go at your own pace with the self-guided brochure and be sure to wear your walking shoes! “We are so excited to show off these multi-use properties. The rehabilitation and design work is amazing! We truly appreciate the loft dwellers allowing us to show off their homes.” stated Christina Blevins, Executive Director for Believe in Bristol.
