Get ready for First Friday

| September 5, 2013

COSHOCTON – Come enjoy downtown Coshocton with family and friends at the final First Friday of the season

“It’s like a giant block party and a great time to meet neighbors,” said said Cheryl Triplitt-Wantuck.

First Friday is from 5 to 8:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 6, on Main Street and one of this month’s highlights is Antiques and Uncle Junks.

“If you had a garage sale this summer and didn’t sell everything bring it down,” said Triplitt-Wantuck. “It’s only $5 for a table.”

Applications to take part in the flea market are available at Triplitt-Wantuck’s Gift Depot.

The evening also will feature country games such as frog jumping.

“We are trying to do more kids games up and down Main Street,” Triplitt-Wantuck said.

There also will be food, music and much more.

“We’ve had a lot more vendors and participation this year,” Triplitt-Wantuck said. “Lots of clubs, churches and residents have been coming down.”

The September First Friday also will feature dancing in the streets with Zumba by Traci Smilo and students from Miss Jennifer’s.

“Miss Jennifer’s usually brings out quite a few people,” Triplitt-Wantuck said. “We like to let them come down and dance in the street since it’s closed off.”

First Friday is an Our Town Coshocton event. The nonprofit groups meets at 5 p.m. the fourth Monday of every month at Frontier Power. Everyone including business and property owners and the general public are welcome to come and discuss ideas to unify Roscoe, Main Street and Second Street. For information, call 440-666-2652 or 440-465-7727.
