As a non-religious holiday, the Fourth of July is one that most Americans celebrate. For one day a year, most of us don red, white, and blue and do something to celebrate being an American. The mohawk above is an example of an exuberant patriot. The photo was taken downtown on Elm Street at Festival Park (last year, actually).
Just when Greensboro has had time to catch its breath from Fun Fourth, today is First Friday which means downtown will come alive with people, yet again. Today's First Friday will be one of the busiest of the year with all of the special events being offered this evening. Read about some of the options here. From the musical 1776 at the Carolina Theatre to Elsewhere's surry rides to shopping the indie market, dining, and entertainment in-between, you will not be disappointed if you head to town. We haven't put our red, white, and blue clothes away; we just may wear them again today! Hope to see you there.
