If you have never been to a Carbondale's First Friday, you're really missing out. Time to come join in the fun! On the first Friday of each month, Carbondale puts on quite the celebration, especially in the upcoming Spring and Summer months.
The Carbondale Chamber and First Fridays Committee are working hard to expand this established community event to encompass Main Street, the Third Street Center, and the Highway 133 corridor. The wildly popular event highlights the arts, shopping, music and dining, and it continues to grow. If you make it to Carbondale's Main Street early in the month, expect things like a Fun Family Block Party at the Village Smithy, REC Center activities, arts and crafts with Handmakery, street parades, a fashion show by Lulubelle, live music which leads into late night dancing, and even puppies available for adoption from Carbondale Animal Rescue.
On these exciting evenings, you can even purchase David Rasmussen Design products at the cool, new Launchpad - creative hub for artists and community members alike - right downtown. With studio space for the performing arts, a spacious fine arts gallery and an "Artique," it's hard to imagine what Carbondale was like before the hip Launchpad came to town. Their fashionable art boutique is where you'll find our creations.
See you on Friday, March 4th!
