The community is buzzing about one of the Brookneal Chamber of Commerce’s most anticipated events…Main Street Strong-Tour the Town. The event will be held on Friday, Aug. 23, from 5-8 p.m.

Many businesses along Main Street in Brookneal will stay open past normal closing hours or have tables set up out front. Any businesses in town that want to participate can set up a table. 

Visitors arrive in town to walk down the street to visit each table. Many of them offer free gifts or door prizes to register for.
