First Friday in Lancaster, PA

September 7, the first Friday of September, was a perfect late summer evening for a celebration of downtown Lancaster!  Temperatures in the high 70s and a soft, almost imperceptible breeze made for a most pleasant outdoor atmosphere, and Lancastrians took full advantage of the city's First Fridays program.

First Friday

Cafes on North Queen and North Prince Streets were open for business with tables out by the sidewalks, and people took full advantage of the pleasant weather to have a light repast and watch the passers-by.

                First Friday

Street musicians were out in force, from Caribbean rhythms to folk, jazz and blues guitarists.
