First Friday event celebrates 'June Joy'

This month’s First Friday festivities, scheduled 6-9 p.m. Friday in downtown Los Altos, feature the theme “June Joy!”

This month’s event emphasizes First Friday shopping for Father’s Day, graduations, weddings and anniversaries, according to event co-organizer Carol Garsten. She said Friday’s event is extended an additional hour due to a city of Los Altos-sponsored concert featuring the House Rockers, 6-7:30 p.m. on the newly installed State Street Green. The green, located on State near the First Street intersection, is closed to auto traffic, with grass covering the street.

The Los Altos Forward-sponsored event includes a “Guess the Lucky Number” contest with 23 participating merchants; browsing and shopping at retail shops and galleries, many of which offer discounts and complimentary refreshments; and approximately 20 restaurants serving a variety of cuisines.

Los Altos Forward, a program of the Los Altos Community Foundation, is a volunteer group dedicated to promoting vibrancy in downtown Los Altos. First Fridays are designed to provide a fun, social and community-building evening for local residents.
