First Friday is one of the many events that everyone should attend during their time here at WAC. It is a very fun occasion that takes place in downtown Chestertown. The first Friday of every month the townsfolk walk up and down the sidewalks and visit the shops, which stay open late for this special occasion. There are free things for the passersby, and even fun activities for the children! Shops such as Poor Richards, Music Life, and Evergrain are a few of the places that keep their doors open late and cater to the crowd of people visiting every shop. Many places have special sales and plan to do great business during the busy night. So take a break from the hustle and bustle of campus and get into town. Chestertown has so many events that are both fun and diverse, and students of Washington College are encouraged to participate. The next first Friday will be December 5th; so make plans to attend then relax, hang out with friends, and maybe find some exciting Christmas gifts!
