A “little” chill in the air and sporadic rainfall did not deter the First Friday fans from enjoying their evening out and about on Jan. 4th with the theme of “A New Year, New You”. Mickey Kunkle of the North End Gallery mesmerized the audience with her 3-D printer as she created colorful and intricately cut jewelry pieces.

Artists were busy at work at Shepherd’s Old Field Market, including Brooke from “Designsby Brooke”, captured above crafting a set of earrings in her uniquely colorful and vibrant style.

Author Brian Monge signed copies of “Thoughts of a Mad Man at 3 AM” at Fenwick Street Used Books & Music, Felicia served up handcrafted sweets with a smile at Heritage Chocolates, and Joseph Norris warmed up the heated patio with live music at the Port of Leonardtown Winery.

Many other activities and events highlighted the night, more than we can mention here so just plan on joining us from 5-8 PM on February 1st for the next event!

The Leonardtown Business Association (LBA) would like to thank everyone who attended and all of the merchants who participated as well as the First Friday volunteer team and our very special sponsors of all levels. Make Leonardtown your “Special Place To Be” every First Friday, keep an eye out for future announcements of upcoming specials and plans on our Facebook page.
