First Friday this past Friday was designed for pedestrians as everal blocks of Elm Street were closed to cars. Pedestrians, bicyclists, and skateboarders were in paradise- board, tire, and sneaker paradise, that is! As seen above, much of the fun was taking place on South Elm Street just north of Washington Street. This past Friday, from shop owners to art galleries to restaurants, food trucks, and indie artists, everyone went out of their way to make people feel welcome.
A few minutes after we took this photo, the sky opened up and rain started pouring. Last year's First Fridays had their share of rain. We're hoping this season Greensboro get some dry First Friday's, as they are such a great time to get out and explore our city. The iconic Kress and JP buildings look lovely in this photo.
