Farmington, MI (July 2, 2015). Downtown Farmington is starting something new
called Farmington Second Fridays (F2F). Businesses will stay open until 9:00 pm and
offer specials, promotions and activities on the second Friday in the months of
July through October (July 10, August 14, September 11, and October 9). The
goal is to create a win-win for both patrons and merchants.
Look for the F2F logo in the windows of participating
merchants to plan your evening of fun. Please ask your favorite merchants to
contact the Downtown Development Authority if they have not already agreed to
extend their hours. A list of all participants will be available for easy
reference at www.DowntownFarmington.org.
Those who are fans of Rhythmz in Riley Park, a free outdoor
concert series from 7-8:30 pm, will be perfectly positioned to continue enjoying
summer fun with the convenience of extended hours for shopping, dining and
getting in some light exercise. Timeless architecture and
modern shops make strolling through Downtown Farmington a truly enjoyable
“The Farmington Second Fridays series is an exciting opportunity for
members of our community and beyond to support local businesses and restaurants
while enjoying extended hours, promotions, and great live music,” said DDA
Board Member and Project Chair Sean Murphy. “It's a fun way to showcase
Downtown Farmington's emerging presence as a social, retail and dining
business hours and offering patrons the opportunity to make the most of their
weekends has been a long time in coming. The perfect ending to a long work week
can include not only shopping, but also a delicious meal at one of the fabulous
restaurants. There is a variety to suit
every taste. Take advantage of the F2F specials and promotions offered by
