What are First Fridays?

They are a great family, fun and FREE event that take place on the Downtown Square! Bring your chairs, your blankets and find a spot on the grassy areas or sidewalks/benches to enjoy a great night of music. During First Fridays you can purchase beer/wine from our downtown restaurants/growlers and you can walk around the Square with your beer/wine in the cup and wristband provided when you purchase your beverage. Grab a bite to eat or get a bite to go at one of our incredible restaurants and do some shopping too.
