Final First Friday thrills bacon lovers

| September 5, 2017

COSHOCTON – Despite the chilly evening, locals and tourists alike turned out to taste the different foods being offered at the final First Friday for 2017.  Games and activities were available for children and several classic cars lined Fourth Street. The smell of BBQ and bacon was an attraction few could resist.

Barb Karr, president of Our Town Coshocton, was a little disappointed with the weather for the evening. “We have not had good luck with the weather this year.  We had to cancel one event because of the weather and it rained during a few others,” she said. “We haven’t even talked about next year, yet. There will be a meeting soon and maybe we need to tweak our plans a little in case the weather next year is like this.”

This First Friday combined with the Bacon Festival. “All of the food vendors had to incorporate bacon into what they offered, somehow,” said Karr. Gary Rahn, a Coshocton County resident, provided a beautiful mix of country and rock music for the families attending the festival. “We want First Fridays to be something for families to do together that doesn’t cost a lot of money.  Personally, I would like to find a way to include local businesses in the events, to find a way to make it beneficial for them.”

Several members of the West Lafayette Homecoming Court were excited to find a Scentsy consultant at the festival. Cherie Reveal has brought her products to almost all of the First Friday events and is currently holding a fundraiser for the group.  The young ladies couldn’t decide which scent they liked best as they smelled each sample. Reveal said, “First Fridays serve as a great community event that the whole family can enjoy. The different themed First Fridays and local businesses sharing in the event make the evenings a success.”
