Come One, Come All to First Friday!

It's a carnival-themed First Friday in downtown Wellsboro!

 

by Home Page Staff, Loren Nowak - August 4, 2016

Hello everyone and welcome to Wellsboro Home Page! It’s that time again! Come one, come all…and step right up – It’s First Friday!

We’ve got lots of music downtown this month in many varied styles: Acoustic, Folk, Bluegrass, Singer/songwriter, a Capella, violin and Ukuleles!
This month we welcome back Mara Wilcox and Katie (Debach) Palmatier! They will be playing their ukuleles and singing upbeat fun songs in front of Shabby Rue. They’ll be sure sure to make you smile.
Hear young singer and guitarist Kreslynn Kilmer at The Native Bagel. Jesse Gotschal (The Road Virus) will be at Pop’s Culture Shoppe. Catch a violin tune from Johanna Vogt at Cafe 1905, stop and hear Caleb Rutherford on banjo at Country Ski & Sports and listen to some great acoustic music from Vernal Pool (Anne and Ciro LoPinto and friends) in front of Stained Glass Reflections. Band Director, Veronica Callahan, and the Wellsboro High School Fall Marching Band will perform a mini-concert for us on the lawn at the Deane Center. They’ll play there early in the evening and who knows where they’ll show up next? Come and find out! (we have a suspicion it might have something to do with free hot dogs for the players!)

The Wellsboro High School Fall Marching Band is made up of students from 8th to 12th grade who really love playing their instruments. The WHS Marching Band performs at every football game for the Wellsboro Hornets. They also perform in several parades throughout the fall Season. But we don’t have to wait until Fall to hear them. They’re sharp now but just wait until the first Hornets game! They’ll be even more amazing!
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.

FREE HOT DOGS! Are you hungry for a snack? Wander down 19Crafton Street towards Pearl and grab a free hot dog, courtesy of Roger Bunn, one of our Tioga County Commissioners. This month spoon on some special “secret recipe” Rochester style hot sauce. Beware! It’s spicy!

FREE COOKIES, TOO! We welcome our own Main Street SUBWAY to our family of First Friday friends. Stop in at Subway and all kids under 12 will receive a free cookie between the hours of 5:00 and 8:00PM. Subway will also have some free samples of other yummy treats. Subway will have a coloring contest for 3 age groups where you can win a free kids meal or a fresh value meal. They’ll announce the winners on the following Tuesday. If you’re looking for a dining deal, check out the 4/4/4. 4 six-inch subs from the Fresh Fit Menu, 4 bags of chips and 4 big 21-ounce drinks. All for twenty bucks!

The world famous, forever WFF Sidewalk Chalk Art Contest is in front of Stained Glass Reflections and Garrison’s Mens Shop. Apryl Tubbs and Tioga Partnership for Community Health will facilitate the contest and award 3 prizes courtesy of Peggy’s Candies & Gifts. Everyone who makes art on the sidewalk goes home with a gift.

Dunham’s Department Store: Mary Wise will be there to do face painting for kids as well as some “circus themed” fun activities at Dunham’s. ALSO there will be “Take an additional 25% off half-price sale!”

Also this Friday August 5th, First Citizens Community Bank teams up with the Community Blood Bank for a blood drive. The mobile blood bank will be in the lot at First Citizens on East Avenue from 1:30 – 5:30 for your chance to donate needed blood and have some fun with free giveaways and prize drawings every hour. For more information email lcope@fourhearts.org.

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 sticks for sale to help raise money for a trip to Washington, DC this summer.
Find them under the roof at Ginn & Vickery in front of The Red Skillet.

The YaYa Sisterhood Relay for life team will be outside of Indigo Wireless with some fun and freebies.
“Play me. I’m Yours!” Yes! The pianos are out on the street again! It doesn’t matter if you can play Chopsticks, Heart and Soul or a Chopin etude. Sit down and play! Thank you, Hamilton-Gibson!
As you are walking about, here’s a little more art for you. Stop in at the Deane Center where the Canyon Photography Club members have their works on display.

Come one, come all! We’ll be clowning around at The Fifth Seasonon First Friday, August 5th. Get a red nose and have your photo taken in our clown stand-in. We’ll text or email your photo to you instantly! Kids can enter our coloring contest. Prizes will be awarded in 3 age groups – 1-5, 6-10 & 11+. Winners announced at 8 PM. Refreshments will be served. Stop in and check out all of the RED HOT DEALS as part of our SUMMER CLEARANCE SALE!

In My Shoes will be having our Back to School kick off! Featuring reduced prices on adult and kids sneakers….Nike3, Asics and New Balance! We measure their feet to get the proper fit. Kids will also get a pencil to take home to help with doing homework and a package of Smarties Candy to encourage them to get smart. Shop local and save!

Pop’s Culture Shoppe: Let the games begin! Pop’s will host the opening ceremonies for their Summer Games Olympics, and you’ll have your first opportunity to score points in the Olympic Ring Toss! Pick up their complete Olympic Schedule during First Friday and plan to enter multiple events throughout this two week event, as you aim to bring home the gold! Game designer Dan will be back with his original Geo-Caching game, along with some new projects. Give them a try, and get 10% off DPH Games tonight! Music by “The Road Virus,” art by Josh Crane, and more game night fun await you at Pop’s!

Have fun with trying to answer some patriotic trivia questions. The Wellsboro VFW Auxiliary will be in front of Carson Finance with some trivia questions and prizes if you get them right.

Wild Asaph Outfitters will be doing a cooking demonstration. Come out and see how Jetboil’s Backpacking Stoves work and sample some of WAO’s dehydrated foods for free!

It’s “Dickering Day” all day Friday August 5th at Treasure Agents on East Avenue. Come in and make your best deal on that favorite Antique Item. We will have a surprise giveaway for some lucky shopper! And we will reward one “first time shopper” and one “loyal shopper” with a special discount at checkout. Check out Treasure Agents and “Find History to Share.”

Need a bottle of ice cold water? Pick one up in front of Hub’s Oxygen.

Grubby’s Games (Pearl Street Shops) will be holding a Super Smash Tournament on First Friday starting around 5:30 PM. It will be on the Wii U. This event is free to enter and there are prizes for everybody and grand prizes for the top four. First prize will be an Xbox 360 system!

The Gaslight Gallop is a 5K that is open to anyone! Registration opens at 5:00PM at the Packer Park Community Center on 3 Queen Street, Wellsboro. The race will begin at 6:00PM. The entry fee to enter the race is $20.00 a person. Awards will be given to the top overall male and female competitors, as well as the top men and women in each age group.
