Five-foot-high cardboard cutouts placed around Main and State streets will encourage participants to take photos of friends and family as a beer bottle, a hot dog, and disco dancers. Attendees can spread the word about First Friday by posting photos on social media channels and tagging “Downtown Los Altos First Friday.” The three people with the most “likes” on their posts will win a prize package filled with First Friday swag.
Ten live bands are scheduled to perform at various spots around downtown. Art galleries will host receptions, stores, and restaurants will extend their hours, with some offering complimentary refreshments and special discounts.
Also, Club 55, a mingling event for residents ages 55 and up, is scheduled 6-8:30 p.m. on the back patio of 169 State St. (formerly the Costume Bank).
First Friday is a monthly promotional event sponsored by the nonprofit Los Altos Forward, a Los Altos Community Foundation program.
