Entertainment that evening will be provided by Michael Doyle (rock) at the corner of Elm Street and Quimby Streets from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and by Nikki Briar and The Sweetbriar Band (“a taste of county, a lick of rock”) in the 105 Elm Street Park from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Once again, "chivalrous" local male dignitaries and volunteers will greet women at the event and open doors to shops.  

“Girls’ Night Out is a great way to get acquainted with many of the downtown businesses,” Sherry Cronin, executive director of the DWC, said. “It is a much-anticipated event and provides a unique opportunity to have an evening out with your girlfriends. The businesses are excited to welcome the ladies to demonstrate their latest products and services. The ladies just have a great time downtown, and many stay for dinner and drinks.”
