Main Bustles With First Friday Events


The merchants on Main Street are hosting their fourth First Friday event.

Rain or shine, the fun begins at 5 p.m. and last for three hours -- enough time to see the sights, meet an artist or two, catch up with friends, buy the perfect antique and enjoy the music and the evening air.


Jay LeBow's Integrity gallery will have a First Friday sale.

"First Friday has drawn attention to the fact that there are art galleries and antique shops. There is a reason to come down and we are definitely excited and we always draw a good crowd. Maybe it is because we have the best refreshments," Dan Basinski said.

He and Tyler Kilbourne are the featured artists at Down the Street Gallery at the West end of Main.

"First Friday is like hosting a party every month," Brenda Mooney of Bootleg Alley said.

Across the street from Bootleg Alley is the historic Oxbow Saloon.

Next to the Oxbow is Main Street's newest art gallery, Integrity.

Owner Kasandra LeBow will have blowout prices on jewelry, handbags, art glass and original artwork Friday evening. Look for the blue tags.

Guests of Integrity will enjoy chocolate tasting provided by the Sugar Shack and music by D.J. Craig.

Payson Senior Center Thrift Store joins the merchants open late with a super sale on clothing, with garments tagged at 25 cents, and 25 and 50 percent off. Other clubs and organizations will also be participating. On-street parking is available on the south side of the street and there is extra parking near Bootleg Alley.
