🎉We are excited to announce the return of the award-winning First Fridays series on June 7 from 4 PM to 9 PM. Recently honored as the Best Retail Event in the State by the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC), First Fridays are set to light up the downtown area with a summer kickoff that promises fun and excitement for all ages.

The event will feature a vibrant array of activities including a 70s and 80s DJ at Monument Square, cornhole tournaments (to register email rac.baggers@gmail.com), and FREE hot dogs from 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM. Night Wing will also entertain guests at Crosswalk Park from 5 PM to 7 PM, across the street from Salute Italian Restaurant.

But there is more! The public art project featuring butterflies will officially be unveiled to the public throughout Downtown! View 26 butterflies, all with a different vision and uniqueness.
