First Friday!

First Friday!
First Friday is a monthly party in the downtown Canton Arts District sponsored by Kempthorn Motors featuring themed music, performance and visual arts events and always a few surprises for adults and children. It is primarily a self-guided tour of local art galleries, studios, stores and restaurants. First Friday begins with a First Stop at the Canton Museum of Art @ 5:30, followed by the full-out event downtown from 6-10 p.m. Rain or shine. First Friday happens every month – year ’round!
