MainStreet Roswell Announces
First Friday DownTown Market
March 1, 2019

“Music to Your Ears and Wallet!”

MainStreet Roswell’s First Friday Downtown Market is going to include music, animals, specials, discounts, and free kid’s activities. Businesses downtown will spend Friday, March 1st celebrating Music in Our Schools month AND Dr. Seuss’s birthday with fun and savings for the whole family!

Take a free photo with the Grinch and the Cat in the Hat, who will be visiting various downtown businesses from 5-8 pm, with scheduled readings of Dr. Seuss 5 pm and 7 pm at Tascosa (321 N. Main). The Roswell Public Library children’s program staff will also be at Tascosa with kid’s face-painting, and while you are there you can meet some sweet adoptable pets who will be visiting from the Humane Society. There will be a free kid’s craft activity provided by KAPS (Kids Arts Programs) outside in front of Tascosa, where kids can decorate their own musical instruments (while supplies last).

For more furry fun, stop by She’s a Dandy 5-8 pm (302 N. Main) to meet Catness – the Patagonian Cavy who will be visiting from Runyan Ranches Rescue Zoo. In case you don’t know, a Cavy is a small exotic animal that looks like it stepped out of a Dr. Seuss book. It looks like it is 50% rabbit, 25% Guinea pig 25% ground hog and 100% adorable! Wear anything Dr. Seuss for 10% off your purchase there.

KM Therapeutic Massage will have their massage chair set up by Reischman Park (310 N Main St) from 5-8 pm offering free chair mini-massages. Enter their free drawing for a chance to win one of two gift baskets filled with facial scrubs, lotions, facial cloths, and gift certificates! Winner’s names will be drawn at 7:30 pm (no purchase necessary to enter or win)!

Main Street Arts / The Gallery (233 N. Main) will have live music with Matthew Palmer performing and a free kid’s Spring painting project (all materials provided while supplies last). Camp Invention will have a table set up there with information about the camp, registration, and available discounts!

Once Again Consignment and Resale (207 N. Main) invites you to bring any non-perishable food item to donate to Harvest Ministries or feminine hygiene item to donate to the “Helping the Homeless – I challenge you period” campaign and your name will be entered in a drawing for a $60 massage!

Barringer’s Blossom Shop (314 N. Main) will have free craft projects for kids and free snacks too. While you are there be sure to check out their in store specials and amazing chocolates!

There will be food and music at Reischman Park (310 N Main St) from 5:30-7:30 pm provided by MainStreet Roswell’s official First Friday DJ – DJ Hendawg! Kik’s Thai Food Truck will be there so you can eat under the stars while you enjoy the music!

Many of our downtown businesses will be offering specials and discounts, making it a great time to shop and save. The weather will be beautiful, so take a mini-vacation for March First Friday and let the fun-loving spirit of our downtown refresh you!
