First Friday festivities with a “Valentine’s Sweets Tour” theme are scheduled 6-8 p.m. Friday in downtown Los Altos.
Stores and galleries, many providing First Friday discounts and refreshments, will remain open.
The event will offer a number of activities for visitors of all ages.
• More than 20 restaurants serving a wide selection of cuisines will be open.
• Musicians will play throughout downtown, including 37th Parallel, The Latin Band and Woody Arnold.
• Merchants will participate in the “Find the Sweets” game.
• Local stores and restaurants donated gift certificates for drawings. Enter the drawings by purchasing merchandise during the First Friday event (one entry per $25 spent that evening) or by participating in the “Find the Sweets” game.
All activities are indoors, so the event will take place rain or shine.
