You’re invited to the First Friday festivities in Downtown Los Altos on November 1st, 2013 from 6-8pm. This month the theme is “Los Altos Youth Art Exhibit Welcomes SFMOMA”. Contemporary art pieces created by local Los Altos elementary, middle, and high school students will be displayed in stores as a welcome for the SF MOMA exhibit that will open on November 8th in Downtown Los Altos.
This project connects Los Altos/Los Altos Hills Community Values Youth, Los Altos Forward’s First Friday, downtown merchants, Los Altos Rotary, students, families and the community at large. This evening’s event is meant to appreciate the youth in our community. Each student that submits art will get a $5 gift certificate from Know Knew books at 366 State Street and a flashing yellow star, sponsored by Nature Gallery, to wear for recognition during the evening.
During the First Friday you can browse and shop at the open stores and galleries, many providing First Friday discounts and scrumptious refreshments and beverages. While strolling, listen to creative musicians throughout downtown. Some of this month’s lineup includes:
- Los Altos Youth Chamber Ensemble
- The Sunday Seven
- Fully Funded
- Black Mountain Radio
The First Friday headquarters will be at the Nature Gallery, 296 State Street from 6 – 8:30 pm. Come here to get information about the First Friday (and refreshments).
Mark your calendar for this fun evening, beginning at 6pm. And as always, over 20 downtown restaurants will be open and serving a wide selection of cuisines. There is plenty of free parking.
