Downtown Merchants Association thankful to be in Beaufort, will celebrate two great November events

The Downtown Beaufort Merchants Association invites the community to come downtown and enjoy an evening of live music, dining, and late-night shopping.

November is the month for reflecting on all we are thankful for. Keeping that in mind, shops will feature specials and promotions, and many will have refreshments on hand for shoppers to enjoy while looking for that special something for someone special or treating friends and family to a wonderful dining experience.

Portions of Bay Street and surrounding blocks downtown will be closed to traffic so everyone can safely and easily enjoy a stroll while exploring the eclectic blend of downtown shops, galleries and restaurants. The event runs from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 1, and like all First Friday events, is free, kid-friendly, and welcoming to all.

Souls Harbor, (voted Beaufort’s favorite band), will provide live entertainment, and the Beaufort Classic Car and Truck Club, along with the Sun City Car Club, will have their restored and vintage vehicles on display. Members from each club will be on hand to talk about their cars and share information about their clubs.

November is a time the community can show gratitude for small businesses by supporting them throughout the month and celebrating Small Business Saturday on Nov. 28.

Holiday shopping kicks off and merchants and businesses throughout downtown will show their appreciation for customers in their shops, galleries, and restaurants as they enjoy the season. Many will offer specials and discounts, and feature entertainment and demonstrations to enhance and highlight the value of local shopping and dining.

From Thanksgiving Day to New Year’s Day, parking downtown is free, making it especially convenient to support local businesses and enjoy all that downtown has to offer.
