Get ready to fall into First Friday

MILLEDGEVILLE — Fall has arrived which means it's time to for Milledgeville Mainstreet's First Friday Fall Frenzy. Be sure to come join the frenzy Oct. 4 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. and help welcome in the new season with entertainment and family fun. 

"We try to give our Fall Frenzy the feel of a fall festival, only on a smaller scale," said Carlee Schulte, Milledgeville Main Street director.  

First Friday festivities are always designed to include everyone in the family. During the Fall Frenzy, kids will have a chance to satisfy their sweet craving long before Halloween with a huge candy drop in the post office parking lot. According to a press release, children ages 6 and under will start at 7 p.m. followed by ages 7 and up at 7:30 p.m. Another activity for the kids to enjoy is a pumpkin painting activity held by the Oconee Regional Medical Center kids' corner. A popular event for the kids every year is the Touch-A-Truck event, which gives children a chance to sit in and touch various types of vehicles from Southside Equipment, Big Boy Toys and Beckhams Used Cars. 

There are plenty of festivities for adults to partake in as well. For starters, there will be live performances from the Oconee Regional Symphony Orchestra located on South Wayne Street near JC Grant Co. Rogers Entertainment will also be on Hancock Street, with percussionist and drummer Big Ernie. At Fall Line Farmers' Market you'll find May View Road playing from 5 to 7 p.m. There will also be Georgia College cheerleaders demonstrating cheers and stunts form 4 to 5 p.m. as well as an appearance from Georgia College mascot Thunder.

"We try to make our First Fridays appeal to everyone by providing entertainment for both children and adults," said Schulte.
