Wabash, Ind. –The Wabash Marketplace First Friday Committee is pleased to announce details on the upcoming First Friday Wabash event. First Friday encourages the community to celebrate in downtown Wabash with this month’s theme “Arts Alive” from 5-8 p.m. Friday, June 2nd. First Friday T-shirts and bags will be on sale at many businesses including Visit Wabash County Welcome Center, Bellazo, Marelli's, Modoc’s Market, and the Eclectic Shoppe.
First Friday Wabash is full of many deals, food options, music, and kids’ activities! Travel the downtown with the Trolley ride as many stops are on the list! Enjoy everything on Miami Street while listening to the great sounds of 35 TRAX, which will be playing in the newly built Charley Creek Courtyard. Coming back this year is paint the plows. Kids and adults of all ages are encouraged to paint the City snow plows on Miami St. In addition to paint the plows, there will be an artisan market as well full of a variety of local artisans selling their items. First Friday participants should pick up the month’s guide and travel to each of the featured businesses to find out what their favorite piece of art is. Once the guide is full, you can drop it off at any of the featured locations. You will then be entered to win one of two First Friday Baskets loaded with so many local goodies. June’s First Friday featured businesses include: Crow’s Nest Antique Mall, Eclectic Shoppe, Market Street Mercantile, Borders and Beyond, Chapman’s Brewing, Wabash Carnegie Library, Make it Your Own Art Studio, Eagles Theatre, Filament Tattoo Co., and Paint the Plows Artsfest booth. On top of the fabulous deals and restaurants throughout downtown, the sidewalks will have a variety of food options and musicians as well. Check out First Friday Wabash on Facebook to stay up to date of the event.
Come on downtown and have some fun. We are looking forward to seeing you!
