May is for moms during First Friday celebration

1 min read

Moms are the focus of the Downtown Beaufort Merchants Association’s First Friday for the month of May.

Downtown shops will feature specials and promotions this Friday, May 3, and many will have refreshments and activities for shoppers to enjoy while looking for that special something to show mom how much she’s loved and appreciated. 

Bay Street will be closed to traffic from 5 to 8 p.m. while the public enjoys an evening of dining, shopping, live music.

The musical duo of Velma Polk and Elaine Lake will be at the clock tower adding their special touch to some favorite tunes. 

Shoppers and diners will also get a sneak peak of the upcoming Beaufort Children’s Theatre’s May 17-19 production of The Wizard of Oz. An ensemble from the cast will perform excerpts from the show.

It’s a busy weekend downtown, as the Taste of Beaufort Festival begins on Friday and runs through Saturday. As an extra bonus, downtown shoppers can take unused Taste of Beaufort Festival food and beverage tickets, (valid 2019 festival tickets valued at $1 each), to participating Merchants Association member businesses and use them toward purchases they make from Friday through Monday May, 6.

First Friday events are free and open to the public. For more information, contact the Downtown Beaufort Merchants Association at
