MILLEDGEVILLE — Local residents enjoyed some of the area's music and arts talents this week during the May installment of First Friday.

Friday evening featured lots of live entertainment including The Fall Line Ramblers, Craig Hendricks and Free Lance Ruckus. Ruckus and Hendricks performed at the Fall Line Farmers' Market in front of First Presbyterian Church as a complimentary part of First Friday.

Compassionate Crafts sold lyric/verse paintings and window paintings in front of the Baldwin Lofts, and the Mary Vinson Memorial Library hosted a used book sale at Digital Bridges. 

The Oconee Regional Medical Center Kids' Corner featured a Mother's Day craft session. Also, Rhonda Johnson showed off her talent as a Hula Hooper.
