The first Friday of July is July 4 so there will be extra celebrating during Xenia’s First Fridays event.
Along with the usual food, music, entertainment, cruise-in, strongman competition, shopping specials and walking tour, there will be a Xenia First Fridays Photo Scavenger Hunt
The first 100 people who stop by T. Lane Designs, 75 W. Main St., at 5 p.m. can pick up a list of participating downtown businesses and a description of the items to be photographed using a digital camera, smartphone or tablet. Qualified participants will be entered into a drawing on Saturday morning for prizes.
A “Selfie Contest” invites participants to “like” the “First Fridays in Xenia” Facebook page and post a selfie of themselves enjoying Xenia’s July First Friday festivities. The photos must be posted by 9 p.m. on Friday and the winners will be notified, via Facebook on Saturday. DIANA BLOWERS, CONTRIBUTING WRITER
