Chalk it Up! sidewalk chalk event happens every July First Friday! Don't miss this event!
First Friday was inspired by the days when my Grandmother and her friends would come into downtown on Friday nights for an evening out. They would take in a movie, have a hamburger at the Hamburger Inn, stop for a soda at the Dime Store and spend time with friends, making memories.
Downtown Delaware is still the place to be. First Fridays include a themed event, free children's activities and businesses stay open late. This is a family time to join your neighbors, walk the shops, eat at local restaurants and enjoy the community that Main Street has helped to rebuild.
Sponsorship opportunities are available for each First Friday event, join together with us to continue building community in Delaware. Email for more information.
