First Friday: Pay It Forward
The temperatures may have dropped, but downtown Greenville will continue to offer a full calendar of events for all to enjoy! The fun will continue during the October First Friday: Pay It Forward event on Friday, October 4th from 6-9 pm.
As we enter the harvest season downtown businesses are looking to give back! Businesses participating in the "Pay It Forward" event will be selecting a charity or non-profit to which a portion of their proceeds from the evening will be donated. The community is invited to get a jump start on holiday shopping during First Friday, and take pride in knowing that their purchases are not only supporting small local businesses, but going on to help charitable organizations carry out their missions.
A full list of participating businesses and their chosen charities will be available on the Main Street Greenville Facebook page.
During the evening, there will also be musicians performing in different locations throughout the district. Some will be hosted inside businesses and some will be hosted outside, weather permitting. If there is a chance of inclement weather, the musicians will all be moved inside.
Main Street Greenville invites everyone to make reservations to eat dinner downtown from 6-7 pm, and stay for the music performances from 7-9 pm (unless stated otherwise). In addition, many businesses will stay open late for shopping!
“Our live music events are always extremely popular and well-attended,” said Crysta Hutchinson, Executive Director of Main Street Greenville. “Our events are created to bring people to the downtown district to help support our local small businesses. The events are a nice boost for their sales and overall exposure to the community.”
