Bring your family and friends and join the fun on May 5 for the First Friday Sip & Shop in Downtown Thomasville. The event begins at 6 pm with extended shopping and dining hours followed by a free concert at The Ritz Amphitheater by musical group Madison and the Band.
“Springtime is one of the best times to enjoy strolling through Downtown Thomasville and shopping and dining with our great businesses,” said Special Events Manager Nicole Elwell. “The weather is also perfect this time of year to enjoy a live concert.”
Before Madison and the Band’s performance from 8-10 pm, attendees can enjoy special discounts from participating businesses through a new “Shop the Block” campaign.
“Everyone loves the concert aspect of our First Friday events, but we also want to bring attention to our shops and restaurants that have extended hours during these events,” noted Main Street Manager Brandy Avery. “Shoppers and diners can enjoy special discounts that will only be offered during our First Friday event hours.”
A list of “Shop the Block” participants and discounts will be posted on Downtown Thomasville’s Facebook page on May 5.
Attendees can pick-up a free arm band and enjoy an adult beverage while sipping and shopping. Food trucks will also set-up at The Ritz Amphitheater beginning at 6 pm.
First Friday Sip and Shop events are free and open to the public. For more information, visit thomasvillega.com or call the Thomasville Visitors Center at 229-228-7977.
