First Friday's patriotic theme salutes July

First Friday and Club 55 are set for a post-Fourth of July celebration with activities, live music and special promotions 6-8 p.m. Friday in downtown Los Altos.

Attendees wearing red, white and blue may win prizes if the First Friday photographer captures their patriotic spirit. To spot the photographer, look for the person wearing a First Friday cap, carrying First Friday balloons and wearing a camera around his or her neck.

First Friday festivities include live music for all ages at various spots along Main and State streets; extended store hours; new artist exhibitions and receptions at downtown galleries; a Kids Corner and the San Jose Spiders Ultimate Frisbee team at Veterans Community Plaza, corner of Main and State streets; and Club 55 at the Assistance League, 169 State St.

First Friday character cutouts and the Wheel of Fortune game will be roaming downtown as well.

For a donation of $20, residents can become a Friend of First Friday and receive a First Friday cap and shopping bag. Donate at Veterans Community Plaza during Friday’s event, or at Los Altos Community Chiropractic at 371 First St., Los Altos Community Foundation at 183 Hillview Ave. or Nature Gallery at 296 State St. throughout the workweek.

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