MainStreet Roswell
First Friday DownTown Market
December 1, 2017

“The Reason for the Season!”

Everyone has different reasons that the holidays are special to them. We want to celebrate that with the 2017 Electric Light Parade AND December First Friday DownTown Market theme… “The Reason for the Season.”

ONE of the many things that makes the holiday season special is the beautiful decorations. Come downtown this Friday, December 1st, for an evening that is festive and fun. Walk down the brightly lit, tree lined streets, listen to beautiful music by artist Rudy Wood at Reischman Park from 5:30-7:00 pm, hear carolers singing along the street while you shop, enjoy holiday activities and treats at various locations, and save with great holiday specials to help you finish up your gift list shopping! Let Main Street merchants help you celebrate YOUR reason for the season! See the full list of participating merchants below.

Thanks to Xcel, Builder’s Do-It Center, MainStreet Roswell, J&G Electric, the City of Roswell, and all the hard working volunteers, it will be merry and BRIGHT this year with our new holiday decorations. Xcel has donated 105,000 lights – 6 miles long if stretched end to end – to decorate the trees downtown. LED lights burn 70-90% less electricity and last 15 years. To find a list of stores where Xcel provides discounts on energy efficient lighting (including LED holiday lights), go to xcelenergy.com/lightingdeals

Down Town Roswell – the perfect place to go to get in the holiday mood this Friday!

Our First Friday Downtown Market event is a volunteer-driven event sponsored by MainStreet Roswell and its stakeholders.  Our goal is to create a fun way to bring the neighborhood together and introduce Roswell residents to all Downtown Roswell has to offer.  With great local shopping and dining, as well as a strong art and music culture, this will provide a great way for people to connect and experience their community.

Select merchants will stay open from 5PM-8PM (or later) every first Friday of the month.  We want to create a monthly event that will grow into something great while encouraging people to shop downtown.  Enjoy a meal from your favorite restaurant.  Relax and eat while enjoying music from local musicians in beautiful Reischman Park!  Meet fellow residents and shop owners in the area.  This is a wonderful community event!
