June First Friday to Feature Live Music, Non-Profits, and Mini-Parks!
Main Street Greenville’s June First Friday event will be sponsored through the generosity of the Jordan Agency and will bring a whole evening of family fun to the downtown district! The event is scheduled for Friday, June 1st from 6-9 pm. The event is slated to feature live music performances, a volunteer fair to highlight the work of local non-profits, and, brand new this year, the introduction of “parklets.”
“The inclusion of parklets in First Friday is a new concept that Main Street Greenville is excited to be bringing to downtown,” said Crysta Hutchinson, Executive Director of Main Street Greenville. “The mini-parks will be places for people to sit with friends, enjoy a treat from a downtown business, and relax while listening to live music. They will have plants and places to sit and just bring a taste of nature into our downtown district. We’re very grateful to Hupmans Lawn Care for helping us create the parklets!”
The live music performances will be taking place both indoors and outdoors. This will allow people to enjoy music as they stroll, shop, and dine downtown during the evening. You will be able to hear great local musicians no matter how you choose to spend your time.
Main Street Greenville invites everyone to grab a bite to eat downtown from 6-7 pm, then enjoy the music performances from 7-9 pm.
The event will also include a Volunteer Fair. The fair will feature over a dozen non-profit organizations offering a family friendly activity, while sharing information about the work they do to make Darke County even better through the help of volunteers. After learning about their missions, you are encouraged to get involved and become a volunteer! It is a great way to connect to your community and help make a difference!
In addition, many businesses will stay open late! Just a few of the fun activities planned during the event; Greenville National Bank will be grilling free hot dogs while supplies last and First Presbyterian Church will be offering free cookie decorating. Bread of Life Bookstore will be having a book signing with author Kristen Samuels and Youniques Boutique will have free chair massages in store along with special sales on select items. Shelly's Antiques and Decor will mark 20% off on all nail kegs and crates for the First Friday and The Little Ones will be offering 75% off the entire store.
