TERRE HAUTE, Ind. – The Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce, along with Downtown Terre Haute, on Friday announced the relaunch of the popular First Friday event series. Terre Haute Chevrolet will again serve as the event’s title sponsor.
“Terre Haute Chevrolet is proud to support Downtown Terre Haute as the title sponsor for First Friday,” Terre Haute Chevrolet General Manager Kevin Cauble said. “We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to support the businesses of downtown, along with an event that brings our community together for a fun and safe experience.”
Since its inception in 2015, First Friday has served as a family friendly way to experience downtown Terre Haute on the first Friday of the month. Restaurants, museums, shops and local businesses work together to present specials, activities and live music throughout downtown.
The new launch of First Friday will continue traditional offerings, including indoor and outdoor activities, music and more. Crossroads Cyclery will set-up a kid’s bike rally and additional family activities will be offered by May and June activities sponsor Mark Metheny, Financial Advisor with Edward Jones.
All festivities will coincide with Eat in the Streets. The weekly outdoor dining experience, headed by the Verve owner Connie Wrinn and Saratoga Restaurant owner George Azar, extends a participating restaurant’s dining capacity to Wabash Avenue.
“More and more people are receiving their COVID-19 vaccination, along with relaxed guidelines from the CDC, so we feel comfortable to proceed with First Friday events, as most activities will be outside, along Wabash Avenue,” Chamber President Kristin Craig said. “Restaurants and small business have been some of the hardest hit over the last year and a half, so we’re anxious to bring people back to downtown.”
This year’s events will be held May 7, June 4, July 2, Aug. 6, Sept. 3 and Oct. 1.
