On Friday, Dec. 7, from 3 to 8 pm, the streets of Vineyard Haven will come alive as the First Friday holiday begins. There will be many local musicians and food vendors, and stores will be open late. The old Bowl & Board building will host some of the Island’s many great artists and musicians in a full-scale art exhibit. Elaine Barse of the Green Room said the event is a continuation of the summer First Fridays, with the goal of shining the spotlight on local businesses, artists, and musicians. Chat with artists and musicians, dance, eat, and get a start on some holiday shopping.
