First Friday Walk
By Jade Arroyo
The First Friday Walk is a new and fun initiative to promote tourism and culture in town and boost the economy. On August 2, owners of galleries and other businesses in town open their doors to receive all the inquisitive walkers. Atención attended the art walk as well.
As is already a custom in several art districts around the world, this is about showcasing what is happening culturally in town through a monthly walk to galleries, restaurants and boutiques that hold an open house featuring special discounts on merchandise along with cocktails.
People walked up and down the cobblestone streets of our city, following the signs indicating which businesses were taking part in the First Friday Walk. We hope this celebration will grow month by month, highlighting all the art, design and fun that San Miguel de Allende has to offer.
