Be enchanted by First Fridays downtown.  Over the past year we have had between 10 and 15 downtown venues celebrating First Fridays. Those participating vary wildly. On any given Friday you might find a tea tasting, a drum circle, Alaskan photography, or a live jazz ensemble, right along with the more traditional, professional painters and artists who were the original founders of this cool re-occurring event. Tell us if you’d like one of our vibrant posters for your business, let us know if you are planning something special for an up and coming First Friday – But most of all visit the outstanding downtown establishments  that promote the arts by hosting First Fridays.
