A big thank you to all who joined us on November 1st for the special “Dia de los Muertos” event! It was a wonderful evening featuring an outdoor movie (a “First Friday” first!), face painting by Wine & Design, mask making with Discover Children’s Museum, a fire dancing performance by Rose Heller, the audience participation Drum Circle with the SoMar Drummers, a paranormal presentation by Patrick Burke, and so much more!

Special events at the shops, galleries, and restaurants were abundant in Downtown and beyond, too many to list here so please see the “Leonardtown First Fridays” Facebook page for fabulous photos and details from the evening. Save the date for the next First Friday event on December 6th from 5-8 PM with the theme of “Where’s the Grinch?”. Many amazing activities and plans are in the works and will be announced soon.

A note of appreciation to the Town of Leonardtown, the Commissioners of St. Mary’s County, LBA business members, the SoMar Drummers, the First Friday volunteers, and Leonardtown Business Association Platinum Sponsors (The County Times, Leonardtown Chevy Buick GMC, Marrick Homes, Quality Built Homes, and Visit St. Mary’s) who all helped to make this yet another wonderful community event!
