First Friday on Georgia Avenue today: check out local businesses with freebies, performances, specials, more

Georgia Avenue Thrive is launching First Friday on Georgia Avenue today, a way to celebrate local businesses in the area with giveaways, freebies, deals and more. It's a neat way to learn more about all the cool stuff on the street. There's also things for kids, pets, and yoga enthusiasts!

The idea is that it will be a monthly event with lots of local spots participating. Pretty neat, I plan to check it out.

Here's more details.
The spring just got more exciting! We are launching the first First Friday on lower Georgia Avenue on Cinco de Mayo. Join us this Friday, May 5th from 6-8pm for our monthly celebration of the Georgia Avenue community with specials and live events at our local businesses, see list below.
