First Friday Kicks Off Tonight in Downtown State College
The inaugural First Friday event kicks off tonight in downtown State College.
From 5 to 9 p.m. the downtown area will be filled with live music, art displays and other entertainment as part of a monthly event held the first Friday of the month.
The Downtown State College Improvement District organized the event, which is modeled after similar events in Williamsport, Lancaster and West Chester.
More than 40 businesses will be participating in the event offering light refreshments and discounts. There will also be six musical acts and art displays throughout the downtown area along with roaming street performers.
"It's going to be a fun festive event. There will be a good energy, a good vibe throughout the downtown," says George Arnold, executive director of the Downtown State College Improvement District. "We certainly want to create an atmosphere in the downtown that people want to come and enjoy it."
Patrons who park in municipal garages can have their tickets validated at participating retailers.
