First Friday has become an event on the "must do" lists for residents and tourists alike. Around 5:30 p.m. on the first Friday of each month, the sidewalks begin to buzz with activity. By dusk, streets and sidewalks are teeming with people pausing to listen to street musicians, watch a magic act, peruse artwork or just chat with friends. Shops stay open late to accommodate the increased traffic and restaurants stay busy until well into the late evening. In the warmer months just after sundown, free entertainment options abound! Some months, we offer a free movie in the park where visitors can bring blankets and lawn chairs to watch a movie sponsored by local businesses and enjoy food from food truck vendors. The Palace Theater also offers free concerts from school groups and bands you're sure to love.
