COSHOCTON – First Fridays are back.

The annual Coshocton First Friday celebrations will start up again on Friday, May 1. Come downtown for free, family friendly activities from 5 to 8 p.m. the first Fridays of the month May through September.

The season of fun also will kick off with a First Friday Parade. The parade starts at 6 p.m. May 1 and judging will be as each unit passes by the court square. Lineup is at the fairgrounds at 5:30 p.m. at the Eighth Street gate off of Kenilworth Avenue. Call Cheryl Wantuck at 1-440-666-2652 to pick up a registration form, however, people can still register the day of the parade. The theme for the parade is Spring into Summer.

“First Fridays are a good time to get out and see friends and family that you might not have seen all winter,” Wantuck said. “They also are kid friendly and create a sense of community.”

Some new activities are planned for this year’s celebrations, but Wantuck doesn’t want to give away the details.

“You have to come and find out what new things we are going to have,” she said. “I think they are going to be fun. Each month is a little different. You just have to come experience them.”

First Fridays are organized by Our Town Coshocton. According to its Facebook page, “Our Town Coshocton is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving, revitalizing, and promoting historic Coshocton County.”
