Downtown Macon's 'First Friday' to be Every Friday

NewTown Macon announced Thursday that starting October 1st, every Friday will be a 'First Friday' in downtown Macon.

Among other things, that means open-container laws are relaxed and patrons can carry alcohol in cups from venue to venue.

Kris Hattaway with NewTown Macon, says they're calling the event "Friday Fest", and there will be live entertainment every Friday in the Third Street Park.

"We're going to have a variety of music and entertainment, something new and different each week, so that you know there's always something going on in downtown Macon on Fridays," says Hattaway.

The purpose, says Hattaway, is to attract more visitors to the area to support local merchants and restaurants.

There will also be cups and banners on Third St. and Cherry St. that feature the new "Friday Fest" logo.

The Macon Marriott City Center Hotel will also offer special overnight rates for guests that visit First Friday.
