5th Friday to Celebrate Triple Crown
The Alley in downtown Aiken will come alive on March 30 when the Aiken Young Professionals (AYP) host "5th Friday . . . Your Friends, Your Family, Your City!" The event is the first 5th Friday of 2012 and will celebrate Aiken's annual rite of spring - the Triple Crown.
On tap for entertainment will be "Mighty McFly," a popular band delivering 1980s dance music by artists, such as Kool & the Gang, Michael Jackson, Santana, Blondie, Prince, Billy Idol, Pat Benatar, and more.
There will be plenty of activities for kids, too - bouncey houses, face painting, games, and sidewalk art. Local restaurants will be serving food and drink specials, and local artists will be showcasing their works.
"We (AYP) are back, and we are ready to celebrate with family and friends, so come down to The Alley on Friday, March 30th, from 6 to 10 PM, and help us celebrate Aiken's Triple Crown," said Booth.
The 5th Friday happening is a community service event that supports AYP's strategic plan. The plan features five steps with a vision that focuses on three areas - networking, community service, and educational events designed to nurture future leaders of the greater Aiken area. This is the second year of the 5th Friday events.
