|The Heritage Centre Association announces the 2012 First Friday season. The Main Stage will be located on the South end of the Public Square with live music each month from local favorites.
Back by popular demand is the monthly Cruise-In, voted in the Cruisin’ Times Magazine’s top ten Cruise Ins for the past several years. There will be a gift for the first 25 registrants along with door prizes drawn every 15 minutes. Kids are part of the fun each year…bring down your peddle cars for chance to win prizes! Registration
Other activities on the Square will include the Bounce House, balloon sculptor Rex Naylor and Sophia’s Petting Zoo featuring Rosie the llama and several other animals for the kids to hold.
Food will be available on the Square for purchase by Flapper’s Bar & Grille.
Several new art displays are also available for viewing each First Friday throughout the districts galleries including the Knox County Art League and KUDOS on North Main Street. There is a gallery reception in the Buchwald Center Schnormeier Gallery of MVNU and Red Z Gallery each month on South Main Street.
First Friday events are held each month May through October from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and are family friendly. Watch for details for the Second Annual Rubber Duck River Race scheduled for September First Friday.
