First Friday returns for 2009 — on April 3

First Friday returns to downtown Hood River on April 3, 2009, and repeats every first friday through October.

The monthly art stroll and social gathering runs from 5 to 8 p.m. Many downtown merchants remain open, and the downtown’s more than 20 restaurants welcome a flood of hungry diners. Mark your calendar now. Note: Oak Street will remain open for this event, and all other First Fridays during 2009. So remember, keep it on the sidewalk, or “it” might get run over.
