After the hustle and bustle of the holidays have worn off, it's time to reflect on life's simple wonders. Whether you're looking forward to the quiet beauty of that first snowfall, stealing a few moments for a brisk evening stroll, or settling in with your beverage of choice in hand - everyone could use a little break.
This Saturday, Downtown Frederick Partnership invites you to channel some of that restorative energy into their January First Saturday. Enjoy wine tastings at participating Downtown businesses, take advantage of late night shopping hours until 9PM and hitch a free ride on the First Saturday trolley. Make sure you stick around after dark to "light up the night," with luminaries lining Market, Patrick, Church and 2nd Streets, as well as Everedy Square and Shab Row.
