First Friday to celebrate the ‘month of love’

2 mins read

Love is in the air this Friday, Feb. 1, as the Downtown Beaufort Merchant’s Association ushers in the month with a romance-themed evening during their First Friday event downtown from 5-8 p.m. 

To celebrate this special month, everyone is invited to browse merchant member businesses and fill out an entry form for a chance to win a gift certificate for a Beaufort romance package — a night’s stay at Cuthbert House Inn and dinner for two at Panini’s restaurant. While all are welcome to enter the drawing, shoppers who make a purchase at one of the participating businesses will receive two additional entries. The winner of the drawing will be announced via Facebook Live at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 2.  

The association will also kick off a new component of their First Friday event. Each month, they will highlight a different member’s business.  This month, Paints in Paradise will be in the spotlight. Staff from the unique family do-it-yourself art and entertainment venue will be set up at the clock at Bay and West streets to meet and talk with shoppers and to showcase the fun and creative offerings available at their store.

As with all First Friday events, there will be music, entertainment, specials and activities within individual stores. All are invited to come downtown to shop, dine and support the eclectic mix of restaurants, galleries and shops that make Beaufort special.
