The Downtown Beaufort Merchants Association will once again roll out the red carpet – and the sale racks – for the August edition of First Friday on Aug. 3.
The theme for this month’s family-friendly event is “Inside, Outside, Sidewalk Sale,” with a variety of downtown shops, restaurants, galleries and specialty stores featuring special discounts, sales, and promotions to celebrate this monthly event. Some retailers will display merchandise outside so shoppers can get a glimpse of their unique offerings. Others plan to have demonstrations, entertainment, and refreshments inside for customers to enjoy.
Merchants will stay open late, as the event runs from 5-8 p.m., and shoppers can browse the deals while listening to live music and entertainment. G.I. Gypsy will perform at the clock on Bay and West streets, while Liam Cronin and Candice Rae Skingley will fill the sidewalks with their unique blend of high-energy musical harmony, and First Friday favorites the Harbormasters will pop in and out of shops belting out great melodies.
First Friday is a great way to spend the evening downtown taking in the sights and sounds, shopping, eating, and supporting local businesses. It’s a perfect time to get to know the owners, artists, and creative individuals who are part of the downtown business community.
All First Friday events are free and open to the public. For more information, contact the Downtown Beaufort Merchants Association at firstname.lastname@example.org.
