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.
