A Star-Spangled First Friday!

Come to downtown Wellsboro for music, sales, friends & fun!

 

by Home Page Staff, Loren Nowak - June 30, 2016

Wellsboro First Friday is now in the middle of our THIRD season and each month there are more and more fun reasons to meet in downtown Wellsboro. The theme this month is “A Star-Spangled Friday”! Here are some of the things to see, hear, taste, and do on Friday, July 1st. What a great way to kick off the Fourth of July weekend in Wellsboro, PA!
Hot Dogs go well on any Fourth of July weekend. It’s better if they are FREE! Grab one at 17-1/2 Crafton Street courtesy of Roger Bunn. They are really GOOD!

First Friday Activities:

The Sidewalk Chalk Art Contest is in front of Stained Glass Reflections. Help them decorate the sidewalk for the holiday weekend. Let’s see if we can cover the sidewalk all the way to in front of Garrison’s Mens Shop! Apryl Tubbs and Tioga Partnership for Community Health will facilitate the contest and award three prizes, courtesy of Peggy’s Candies & Gifts. Everyone who makes art on the sidewalk gets an “I’M AN ARTIST!” sticker badge AND takes home an activity book to save for later.

In My Shoes: Stop in to do an easy craft and take home a patriotic wand for 4th of July fun. It’s a wand! It’s like a sparkler! It’s fun, easy, and free.

The Native Bagel: They will be hosting a fun flag project for kids with artist Suzan Richar.
Potter and artist James States will bring his potter’s wheel again to the corner of Main and Crafton to demonstrate his art and give anyone, young or old, a chance to play in the mud and learn about the potter’s wheel. He’ll also have some finished pieces for sale.

Dunham’s Department Store: Mary Wise will be there to do face painting for kids.
At Cafe 1905 give a listen to Johanna Vogt on the violin. She comes up with something new for us every month.

Ginn & Vickery Law Office: Boy Scout Troop 24 will demonstrate knot tying and give away ropes and instruction sheets so you can practice what you’ve learned at home. They will also be offering meat stick for sale to help raise money for a trip to Washington, DC this summer.

Pop’s Culture Shoppe: In addition to our usual Game Night fun, we’ll be celebrating FIRST FRIDAY in Wellsboro with the theme “Star-Spangled Friday.” We’ll teach you one of our favorite family trivia game “Timeline,” and offer the American History, and the Americana editions to you at 20% off! Musician Jesse Gotschal aka “The Road Virus” will perform on Pop’s Porch, and painter Josh Crane will demonstrate his artistic talents and fanciful style.

Shabby Rue: There will be live music out front by Kres Kilmer. She’s 12-years old and already winning talent contests! There will also a sale table and a sale rack at Shabby Rue, both with LOTS of items. Don’t miss it!

Emerge Healing Arts & Spa: They will be offering their popular (and free!) chair massage under the roof at Ginn & Vickery. After that, get a free makeup consultation with Jane Iradele products, one of the cleanest makeup lines in the industry.

Vernal Pool (Anne & Ciro LoPinto, Bruce Smith and friends): They will be making music in front of Stained Glass Reflections. Great harmonies and a bevy of acoustic instruments. Stop by listen and say hello.

Treasure Agents: Located on East Avenue, they will be having a sidewalk sale ALL DAY on Friday, July 1st. Besides that, stop in and draw a “star discount.” You will get 10% to 30% off any item (except those already tagged for the ½ price sale going on all summer).

Country Ski & Sports: They will again host banjo player, Caleb Rutherford. Is he the new Earl Scruggs? Give him a listen and decide for yourself.

The Fifth Season: Cool off at The Fifth Season’s lemonade stand. 25-cents a cup, all proceeds will be donated to Second Chance Animal Sanctuaries. We will also be participating in The Great American Beach Ball Hunt! Stop in for your chance to win a beach ball. Free American Flags for everyone!!
To sign up for the Beach Ball Hunt stop by at KC101’s live remote, broadcasting from The Fifth Season. The hunt runs from 5PM to 8PM.

Grubby’s Games: They will be doing a Mario Maker Challenge. Come in and test your Mario skills on some levels created by Mitch Chrysler. We will have awesome prizes for those able to beat the levels, including a $50 gift card for those that beat the hardest levels. In addition to the challenge, we will be offering a sale on games and accessories. 15% off!

From My Shelf Books & Gifts: They will launch the 5th year of the Shop Local event, “Where’s Waldo?” Pick up a passport at any participating business starting on July 1st. Also, stop in and meet Bob Cox, a local resident who recently wrote a book based on his genealogy research, “James Cock: His Life and Times: 1630-1699.”

Second Chance Animal Sanctuaries: They will be outside Penn Oak Reality with picture frames to decorate for your favorite pet picture. Having a picture may help the recover of a lost pet.

The Wellsboro VFW Auxiliary: They will be playing trivia games with prizes for correct answers in front of Carson’s Finance on Main Street.

The YaYa Sisterhood Relay for Life Team: They will be in front of Indigo Wireless. They always come up with something free and interesting for all of us. Stop by and say “hello”.

We hope you will come out to support this Star-Spangled First Friday! A special thanks to all who have fought for our freedom. The staff at Wellsboro Home Page would like to wish everyone a safe and blessed weekend.
