As part of “First Friday,” the Beaverton Downtown Association invites community members to enjoy special retail discounts, live music, raffles, art, artisan foods and shopping in downtown Beaverton on Friday, Oct. 5, from 5 to 8 p.m.

Businesses from Southwest Broadway to Fourth Street, between Main Street and Tucker Avenue will be open extended hours that evening.

“The First Friday program has been a resounding success,” said Mayor Dennis Doyle. “We’re encouraged to see so many businesses taking on the challenge of staying open later. The response has been positive and businesses have seen increased foot traffic on Fridays.

“We hope this encourages businesses to stay open for later hours after the event ends in October.”

As part of the series, more than 40 downtown businesses have offered extended hours this summer. Extended business hours vary, but most begin at 5 p.m. and remain open until 8 p.m. Downtown dining continues at Thai Hi5, Beaverton Saloon, Giovanni’s and Ava Roasteria until 9 p.m. or later.

Dancing at Arthur Murray Dance Studios will be from 9:15 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.

There will be another raffle for gift certificates donated by local merchants. The more participating sites people visit, the more chances they have to enter to win gift certificates from A&P Kitchen, Beaverton Florist, Beaverton Bakery, Costume Avenue, Peddler’s Pack, Legends Sports & Spirits, Emily Andrew’s Portrait Studio or The Wedding Cottage. Ask each vendor for an entry slip. No purchase is necessary to enter.
