August First Friday aims to get students, merchants and schools in gear



There will also be information available about the group and ways those interested can get involved with or volunteer to play with the orchestra.

As with every First Friday, the Fall Line Farmers Market will be held at First Presbyterian Church from 4 to 8 p.m. in support of local farmers, vendors and artisans.

The market accepts SNAP/EBT benefits with payments.

The Fall Line Farmers Market is also a large supporter of local music, and the market will host a very special guest for August.

Big Mike and the Booty Papas, fresh off of a tour in Europe, will perform for the crowd.

“They are a Grammy-nominated R&B band with a big following, and they're great people,” said Debbie Harshbarger, coordinator for the farmers market.

GeorgiaBob's Barbecue Company will also be on hand at the market with samples.

Every First Friday is a way for businesses owners in downtown Milledgeville to present their businesses to the public and have a small boost in revenues for a day.

One local business taking advantage of the buzz surrounding the upcoming First Friday is The Lemon Tree, located downtown on Wayne Street. 

The boutique sells unique gifts and home accessories, and will celebrate its first anniversary at the August event. 

Owner Shannon Stuart says she is excited for the event and hopes that she can boost her business' popularity with what she has planned. The Lemon Tree is slated to launch a new loyalty rewards program for its customers.

By signing up for the program, customers can earn rewards points by spending certain amounts of money with each visit to The Lemon Tree.
