(MURFREESBORO) More than 400 persons attended the 70th Annual Blackman Barbecue this past Friday night (6/28/2019) at the Grove at Williamson Place.


Music from 'UpTown Country Band' filled the air as children young and old enjoy balloon art provided by 'Party Animals Entertainment'. A handcrafted ash rocking chair created in Rutherford County by Tim Watts of Tennessee Chair Company was raffled off.

Proceeds from the event went towards scholarships, playground, Atlas backpack, building maintenance and other community service projects by members of the Blackman Community Club.


Blackman Community Club member Billy Pittman said that the event outgrew the actual community center at least a decade ago . . .

This past Friday night's event was catered by Slick Pig Barbecue, and received rave reviews.

We asked Pittman where the money goes that's raised at the event . . .

The community center is utilized by a large number of residents . . .

Town hall meetings have also been held at the center.

The Blackman Community Club was established in 1947, and is one of the oldest known organizations in this community.
