Phoenixville First Friday: A Community Tradition
First Friday is synonymous with summertime. Across the nation, First Friday is celebrated amongst cities and towns to bring people together. For those unfamiliar with the First Fridays phenomena, it refers to the first Friday of every month, usually within the summer months. May’s First Friday was canceled due to weather, but let’s talk about what you will experience during the forthcoming Phoenixville First Fridays.
