Entertainment enthusiasts, mark your calendars for an assortment of special events to take place at East Troy Village Square Park with the return of East Troy’s First Fridays series, May-November.
“First Fridays debuted last year as a way to celebrate everything our town has to offer and reconnect locals with the businesses we have here,” said Vanessa Lenz, East Troy Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director. “It’s been great for boosting business and drawing visitors to East Troy.”
Events like Food Truck Fest and the East Troy Art Walk became instant favorites and will return in 2017, along with a host of new events as we continue to grow and ensure a full season of activities.
Each First Friday, May-November, will feature a showcase event at East Troy Village Square Park with surrounding local businesses collaborating to bring an afternoon and evening of fun.
