As the summer draws to an end, First Friday gets on the bus with a Back To School theme. Sponsored by First National Bank and featuring a supply drive for local teachers, this monthly event is one of the most well attended all year long. Two local bands, War Radio and the Lemon Brothers, take the stage amidst the crowd of regional vendors.
Sponsored by Main Street Greencastle, First Fridays are a celebration of local culture, hosted April through October, drawing a crowd of well over 1,000. Franklin and Indiana streets, around the Putnam County Courthouse Square, are closed for multiple music stages on which multiple live performers and bands play all evening. Each First Friday has a theme, and all feature local foods and plenty for children to enjoy. Guests certainly are welcome, and admission is free.
