FIRST FRIDAY – Thanksgiving comes early in Downtown Beaufort

2 mins read

The Downtown Beaufort Merchants Association invites the community to come downtown and enjoy an evening of live music, dining, and late-night shopping on Nov. 2.  

November is the month for reflecting on all we are thankful for, and with 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 gift for someone special or treating friends and family to a wonderful dining experience.  The sounds of sweet string instruments will fill the cool fall air as talented students from the Rabinowitz Music School play beautiful melodies along downtown streets.  The First Friday event runs 5 to 8 p.m., and like all First Friday events, it’s free and family-friendly.   

The fun doesn’t end with First Friday. 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. 24.  Holiday shopping will be in high gear 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 Years Day, parking downtown is free, making it especially convenient to support local businesses and enjoy all that downtown has to offer.
