An Independence Day-themed First Friday is a great way to kick off the Fourth of July weekend. Featuring local band, Lincoln Street, the Putnam County Visitors Bureau is sponsoring this highly decorated event. Enjoy a cookout, seasonal drinks and plenty of games.
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.
