First Fridays Festival Park

Are you working for the weekend? Looking for ways to unwind? If you’ve got Friday on your mind, we’ve got the perfect solution. Spend time Downtown this summer with the Town’s First Fridays event series.

On the first Friday of the month, June through August, head to Festival Park to enjoy live music, food trucks, cocktails, kids’ activities and more. House music begins at 5 p.m. Opening bands play from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. The featured artist takes the stage from 7 to 9 p.m. 

The First Fridays events include:

  • June 3 – The Spazmatics | 80s 5K
  • July 1 – Thumpin’ | Patriot Run 5K
  • Aug. 5 – Blink-180TRUE | Color Run 5K

With family friendly activities and a themed run/walk, First Fridays are the perfect nights to bring the entire family Downtown. 

Before you indulge in the Friday fun, start the night off right with the First Fridays 5K. These free, theme-based run/walks are fun for the entire family. The unofficially timed races start at 5:30 p.m. right in Festival Park. Registration is required and available online.
