First Friday festivities in downtown Los Altos are scheduled 6-8 p.m. April 5, with the theme “Fun & Games.” The evening features activities for visitors of all ages.
Visitors are invited to browse and shop at the open stores and galleries, many of which will provide First Friday discounts as well as refreshments.
Local stores and restaurants donate gift certificates for a drawing. Drawing entries are available by searching for hidden pictures in many of the stores, by registering at First Friday headquarters or by making purchases during First Friday (one drawing entry per $25 spent that evening).
Street entertainment includes games, which can also earn drawing entries, and musicians performing throughout downtown, including 37th Parallel, Plaka, Jazz Therapy, the Los Altos High Music Group and the Los Altos Chamber Orchestra.
Pick up programs, get information and register for the drawing at First Friday headquarters, 242 State St.
Los Altos Forward, a volunteer group dedicated to promoting vibrancy downtown, organizes First Fridays to encourage a fun, social and community-building evening for residents of Los Altos, Los Altos Hills and surrounding communities. Los Altos Forward is a program of the Los Altos Community Foundation.
