First Friday in Chambersburg | Read All About It

The Downtown Business Council and Council for the Arts of Chambersburg will feature local and regional authors inside downtown businesses at October’s First Friday!  October’s First Friday will be held on October 7th from 5 – 8 PM. Authors and illustrators will be on hand to sign books, offer reading, and share their experiences.

First Friday participants can complete a “scavenger hunt” quiz along the author’s trail for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate to the choice of their participating downtown business.

Many business windows will feature a page from “Lucy Loves Life: A Fall Visit to the Farm,” by local author Susan Whitelock. Children can walk along Main Street and follow Lucy’s story!
