Each Wellsboro First Friday is a little different, but we always have plenty to do, hear, and see – and lots of First Friday shopping and dining deals. On July 3rd, we’ll have goats, puppies and dogs, (and maybe kittens), for kids of all ages to enjoy! There will also be free art, music, games and activities in downtown Wellsboro, starting at 5:00 PM. (Stay up-to-date on First Friday happenings through the Facebook page.)
