Let's celebrate our Great American Main Street City and 30 years of Main Street’s service to Milledgeville, building community connectedness through shared experiences!
Main Street, the City of Milledgeville, and downtown businesses have partnered in shared support of this much anticipated community event, keeping it free and open to the public.
On Friday, May 4th, from 6pm - midnight, the 100 block of West Hancock Street will be OPEN to pedestrians!
New to Hometown this year... Embracing the Star Wars fandom holiday with which this celebration coincides, downtown will "Strike Back" and evade attack of the daily ho-hum at this event giving the community "New Hope" for galactic entertainment as the fun "Force Awakens." Costumes of the "First Order" are encouraged to channel your inner Jedi, Sith, Leah, Stormtrooper, or other character. Entertainment reigns in the downtown galaxy and includes a Chewbacca Sound-Alike Contest, Costume Contest, Ahch-some activities, intergalactic photo ops, and, of course... May the Fourth Be with You! Two popular bands will be performing to keep the fun flowing. Local favorites from past First Friday events form the band Fiancé. They will open at 6pm with their smooth, old school Motown jams. At 8pm, headlining band Stereotype brings their unique music flavor from the Augusta, Georgia area with high energy, party rocking music of top 40's hits, 90s hip hop, and everything in between.
