3rd Friday in Downtown Salisbury is Friday November 18th from 5 – 8pm, and it’s a great time to come Downtown, for great shopping, dining, and to get in the Holiday Spirit. To kick off the Holidays, the annual Tree Lighting Ceremony will be taking place at 3rd Friday, at the Government Office Building. The program will begin at 5:30 with performances from Cathedral of Love Ministries Children’s Choir, the Liturgical Dancers from St. James AME Zion Church: Youth, Angels and Rising Angels, St. Francis de Sales choir and Moves of Praise followed by the lighting at 6:30.

The City Center Building is proud to hold the March of Dimes 2011 Festival of Trees. Be sure to stop by this 3rd Friday to see the amazing holiday décor designed by over 50 combined local businesses, organizations and talented individuals that will be on display November 19th-December 1st to benefit the March of Dimes and their mission to give every baby a healthy birth through education, advocacy, research and community grants & outreach. Santa will also be there to welcome the kids, take Christmas wishes, and pose for pictures; and 3rd Friday Artists will also be on display.

This 3rd Friday is one of the final days for the CCART Annual Art Show and Sale in the Vernon Powell Building, a great place to find unique gifts from local artisans, all while helping to provide visual art scholarships for local high school seniors. The Art Institute and Gallery will be holding the closing of their 2011 Fall Members show along with a “turkey class” for kids. SWAC will be on the plaza with a special fire-twirling program, and fall crafts for kids as well.

All the shops and restaurants will be open with special sales, and 3rd Friday is pleased to announce that the wait is over! Mojo’s Restaurant will be open, serving light fare from 3pm to midnight, and will be open until 2am. 3rd Friday is pleased to welcome another new business to the Downtown area, and is looking forward to lots of good times at Mojo’s! 3rd Friday is designated as a City Event, and is an all-volunteer effort.
