While visiting with artists and admiring their works, you are welcome to enjoy various hors d’oeuvres and beverages. Many locations will have live music that adds an extra element to the festivities. To make it easy to hop from one location to another, just step onto one of our free shuttle buses. But remember, just like Cinderella, the shuttles turn into pumpkins at 10 pm.

As you read this, map out your quest to visit as many merchants as possible. Each location offers its own special personality and spin on the event to make it a Fun Free Friday Night for all. While you are at it, save the date for the annual Fall Art Hop, White Light Night, on Friday November 18th, 2011.
