Is there still First Friday if "..." ?
Sometimes First Friday falls on or around a holiday, and a lot of people start to ask if it is still going to happen. The answer to that is yes, because the first Friday of every month is still the first Friday, even if it is the 4th of July. First Friday Gallery Night is a totally decentralized event -- so, whether or not all galleries and artists are going to participate is another question, and it can't really be answered without asking each individual gallery. Some may decide to take that Friday off, while others may find it perfectly desirable to hold an art opening, even on New Year's Day. We do our best to get word of every opening and arts event we can find, so you can find the information in one convenient location, but we don't make any rules or guidelines for First Friday itself.
