Friday, March 2 will feature March Madness in downtown Ridgway as part of the First Friday initiative established by the Main Street program. First Friday encourages retail shops in downtown to remain open longer on Friday evenings.
â€śWe are encouraging those who do not have extended hours to do so at least one time a month,â€ť Main Street Manager, Michelle Bogacki said. â€śWe hope to get a little bit of a night life in Ridgway.â€ť
First Friday will feature a theme to coincide with the seasons. â€śWithin the calendar year we have attached themes to each first Friday,â€ť Bogacki said. â€śThis month is March Madness.â€ť
Looking ahead, Bogacki says April will feature Good Friday. Upcoming themes will be culinary and curbside, the annual wine festival, Fourth of July, and winter holiday festivities. The summer months may even offer a little more.
â€śThrough the summer months, I hope to add some entertainment in the gazebo,â€ť Bogacki said.
