MainStreet Roswell Announces
First Friday DownTown Market
December 7 2018

“Merry & Bright DownTown!”

With Roswell’s beautiful holiday decorations, strolling downtown is truly festive, but things are getting even brighter with the First Friday theme this month. It’s “Merry and Bright Downtown” and many of the merchants there will be giving away free luminaria supplies! Businesses participating in the luminaria give-a-way will offer 1 free luminaria size bag and 1 free votive candle (while supplies last). Shoppers can collect a set in each of the participating businesses and have enough to light sidewalks or driveways with luminarias, making it merry and bright at their own homes, too!

Note: Due to possible weather issues, outside music and things planned for Reischman Park have been moved to various indoor locations as noted below. There are lots of fun activities, all inside where it is cozy and warm, and there is plenty of close parking, so don’t let the chilly weather stop you! Luminaria making instructions are on our facebook page.

Barringer’s Blossom Shop is hosting free kids holiday cookie decorating, hot cocoa bar, snacks and a meet ‘n’ greet with the big man himself – yes, SANTA will be there for FREE photos with the kids (young and old alike)! Mrs. Claus will be there too!

Musicians David Marshall and Marie Manning will be playing live holiday and original music in Stellar Coffee, so stop by to enjoy the holiday cheer there!

Do you need some gifts wrapped? Bring them downtown. There are several locations offering gift wrapping (some for free, others for a donation to their youth group).

The Gallery/MainStreet Arts will be offering a free kid’s painting project (supplies are all provided!). Kids will be instructed in painting a frame-able artwork they can keep. Shoppers can have their holiday gifts wrapped here, free, while the kids are doing their painting project.

Tascosa is hosting a youth group who will provide holiday gift wrapping and hot cocoa for a donation to support their football tournament fundraiser. The Humane Society will also be there this Friday, so stop by to see which fuzzy friends are there!

Shoppers can also enjoy holiday music and cookies at Imagine That! Santa will be there too for those needing professional photos with the big guy (he is magic and CAN be two places at once).

All this and much more will be happening downtown this Friday!

The evening may be chilly but it’s warm and festive inside our downtown businesses. The the holiday lights are bright, the music festive, the activities will be fun, and the savings will be wonderful – especially for holiday gift giving! Take a mini-vacation (a STAY-cation) in our very own downtown Roswell!
