Cut out of work for First Friday photo fun

First Friday chairwomen Jamie Lucia, left, and Carol Garsten test out a disco dancing cutout that will be featured with others at Friday’s event in downtown Los Altos.


June’s First Friday festivities will feature cutouts for Instagram opportunities 6-8 p.m. Friday in downtown Los Altos.

Five-foot-high cardboard cutouts placed around Main and State streets will encourage participants to take photos of friends and family as a bottle of beer, a hot dog and disco dancers. Attendees can spread the word about First Friday by posting photos on social media channels and tagging “Downtown Los Altos First Friday.” The three people with the most “likes” on their posts will win a prize package filled with First Friday swag.

Ten live bands are scheduled to perform at various spots around downtown, art galleries will host receptions and stores and restaurants will extend their hours, with some offering complimentary refreshments and special discounts.

In addition, Club 55, a mingling event for local residents ages 55 and up, is scheduled 6-8:30 p.m. on the back patio of 169 State St. (formerly the Costume Bank).

First Friday is a monthly promotional event sponsored by the nonprofit Los Altos Forward, a program of Los Altos Community Foundation.
