Gadsden to host First Friday


Next Friday, July 3, is First Friday in Downtown Gadsden. You are invited to come join us downtown from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., stroll up and down the sidewalks and celebrate all that is great about Downtown Gadsden!  July is Independent Retailer month, so make it a point to visit the independently owned businesses.  You will be sure to find hidden treasures that you might have been missing! 

  Downtown merchants will be open late with specials and sales to help celebrate summer.  Food vendors will line the 400 block of Broad Street and downtown restaurants will also offer specials. Classic cars will cruise in and be on display for onlookers to see all around downtown. 

  Entertainment for First Friday is pretty exciting.  Skydogs will be playing just outside the Pitman Theater, More Than This at 5th and Broad, Peanut and Mother May I at 4th and Broad, Andrea Davis at 3rd and Broad, and Wise Choice at 2nd and Broad. 

  Stop by and show support for the Gadsden Rugby Club in the grassy area at 4th and Broad Streets during First Friday.

  After all the First Friday activities, head over to the Mort Glosser Amphitheater for the Summer Concert Series.  This month will feature American Floyd, A Tribute to Pink Floyd.  The free concert is from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m.  Bring your coolers and cushions and enjoy the show!

  As a reminder to all, pets are not allowed at First Friday. 

  Don’t forget, the fireworks presented by the Gadsden Etowah Patriots Association will be Saturday, July 4 at 9 p.m. over the Coosa River.
