Join in on the fun and find Crabby! The Grand Prize will be two half-day kayak rentals generously donated by Patuxent Adventure Center Paddle Sports, other great gifts from participating businesses will be awarded also.
Come to Downtown Leonardtown and check in at 2 Broke Girls Boutique (22760 Washington St.) for your Scavenger Hunt handout/ list of participating businesses. Walk around town and try to find the crabs in hiding while filling out the handout with all your findings and then turn it back in at 2 Broke Girls Boutique. All correct entries will go into a bucket and we will draw at random one grand prize winner as well as runner-up winners!
Other fun planned for the evening: (update 6/1/18) unfortunately C. Bass & the Rockfish will not be joining us tonight for their concert on the Square due to a family emergency. We invite you to catch Josh Riley Music at the Port of Leonardtown Winery in North Leonardtown from 5:30-8:30 PM for a free show, click here for the Winery’s Facebook event info. Also, vocalist Jennifer Cooper will be presenting and singing at St. Mary’s County Arts Council from 5:30-6:30 PM as part of their new Art Share Series. Other musical guests may also be hosted at the local bars and restaurants, just come on down and take a walk around!
Our “extended” First Friday hours for June will include the return of the SoMar Drummers and the audience participation Drum & Percussion Circle at the grassy field next to St. Mary’s County Arts Council, 22660 Washington St from 8-9 PM. Bring a chair or blanket to sit on, some seating will be available on a limited basis. Instruments will be provided for the Circle or bring your own, all skill levels and ages are welcome.
Throughout town art studios, shops, and restaurants will be open from 5-8 PM with several galleries hosting Opening Receptions for their new shows and featured artists. Merchants will be offering one-evening only specials, many with “crabby themes”.
Be sure to arrive early so you have time to complete the Scavenger Hunt, check-in at the 2 Broke Girls Boutique will begin at 5 PM sharp. Festivities beyond Downtown Leonardtown are also scheduled (once again check out the weekend music schedule at Port of Leonardtown Winery!), see the Leonardtown First Fridays Facebook page for details about specials and offers for the evening.
A special note of appreciation to our Platinum Level Sponsors (Marrick Homes, Quality Built Homes, Winegardner Motor Company) whose generous support makes these community activities possible. A big thank you also to our volunteers from the First Friday Committee who work hard to organize these special events!
