First Friday returns with a bang

May 22, 2014 by Phil Major

Event Date: 
Fri, 06/06/2014 - 6:00pm

Summer 2014 kicks off June 6 with the 4th annual First Fridays Summer Concert Series in historic downtown Aledo. Join the City of Aledo and Aledo Economic Development Corp. for family fun and fireworks from 6-10 p.m. First Fridays have become an Aledo tradition, bringing awareness to Aledo’s small businesses and promoting a sense of community.
Recognized in the Fort Worth Magazine as one of the “Best Places to Live,” Aledo is family oriented and business friendly. The First Friday Events allow for just that, family fun for all ages as well as a unique shopping experience.
Attendees can enjoy a Fireworks Extravaganza, Show & Shine Car Show and Summer Fun Festival. Shop downtown Aledo merchants, many vendors and artisans with exclusive collections. Restaurants will be open, which includes a free live music concert series beginning with Sophie Clark and The Southern Heritage Band in June followed by local artist Katy Keenie.
