No December 3rd Friday, but New Years Eve Instead!
We know everyone is super sad that there will not be an Official December 20th 3rd Friday. We are sad too. We haven't missed a 3F in five years, so we promise its for a good reason!
The Downtown Shops and Restaurants will still be open, and we will share info on Facebook for any special events happening Downtown in the coming weeks. So, spend time with your family and loved ones, finish up your Holiday Shopping and have yourselves a great Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and Festivus.
We will see you only a few short days later, for NYE! That's right, get excited. It's going to be amazing. 3rd Friday has partnered up with some of the Downtown Businesses and Organizations to bring you an official New Years Eve Ball Drop on the Plaza!
The New Years Eve Ball Drop Event will take place on December 31, 2013 from 8pm until shortly after Midnight on the Salisbury Downtown Plaza. The event will be a free event open to all ages. Live music will perform on a stage located at the intersection of St. Peters Alley and Main, with the ball-drop taking place overhead. Acts include The Bonedaddys, Test Kitchen and DJ BallDrop. Alcohol will be available for purchase outdoors within Plaza boundaries and many downtown restaurants and businesses will be open with special events and sales.
Mayor Jim Ireton is also looking forward to this event. “For the community to have a chance to celebrate a New Year’s Eve in Downtown Salisbury is an incredible leap forward. A new generation of leaders is emerging that will take the downtown to even greater heights. I plan to be there for the ball drop, and will take every opportunity to invite the public to be a part of NYE Salisbury”, says Mayor Ireton, “I encourage our community to send a clear message with this event: The ‘Bury is the Place to Be on NYE!“
Event Details will be announces on www.NYESby.com and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/NYESby
