A Slatington FIRST FRIDAY Event
The Greater Northern Lehigh Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with the newly formed Slatington Merchants Group is proud to host the first ever FIRST FRIDAY event on Main Street in Slatington. The Event takes place on Friday, December 2, 2016 beginning at 1 p.m. and ends with the annual tree lighting at Slatington Memorial Park.
The day kicks off with a Pop-Up Market featuring the Blue Mountain Farmers Market at 643 Main Street in Slatington. The market will run from 1 p.m. until 6 p.m. There will also be live Christmas Carols throughout the day. The Blue Mountain Farmers Market hosted their first successful season this past summer offering locally grown produce at the Slatington Trailhead.
Events will continue throughout the day at Charlotte Fay’s Main Street Diner (662 Main St.) which will be offering a special dinner menu, hot chocolate and live music; The Slatington Public Library (650 Main St.) which will be hosting Mrs. Santa’s story time, light refreshments and small gifts for children; and memorial park where there will be free crafts, carols and the tree lighting. After the tree lighting, all guests are invited into St. Johns UCC Fellowship Hall for socializing, pictures with Santa and treats. All participating locations will be marked with luminaries outside of their business. Be sure to take advantage of the free parking on Main Street and take a walk to enjoy all of the great things happening!
Come out and support all our local businesses and enjoy the spirit of the season with our wonderful Choir singing Christmas carols. We will also be collecting unwrapped toys for the “Toys for Tots” campaign. This is a FREE event so please come out and spread the holiday spirit.
