First Fridays is one of our favorite things about Ashland. We love the sense of community it brings and how everyone comes together for a day packed full of fun, food, music, art, and amazing culture. From the silent disco, to the wine tasting, to the art walk, to the endless taste bud tingling food options, to the late night live music – you just can’t go wrong being in Ashland on a first Fridays!
Well, we’ve decided it’s time for us to get in on the action and be a part of creating an amazing first Friday experience for the whole family! We’re super excited to announce that will be hosting a parking lot block party to kick off the summer Friday June 7th from 5PM-9PM at The Story Ashland! If you’re looking for some first Friday fun look no further, we’ve got you covered.
Bring your squad and hop into the blow up boxing ring for an epic showdown to see who can take the most hits with our massive inflatable boxing gloves! Don’t forget to bring the kids as well because they won’t want to miss out on some amazing face painting, our inflatable basketball shootout, or the 25-foot bouncy castle with a super slide. If you’re feeling hungry we will be bringing in a few of our favorite local food trucks to serve up some of the best food around. Grab a beer or iced coffee and challenge one of your buddies to a round of corn hole. We will also have a live DJ playing in the evening to keep the energy of the party at an all time high!
We’re also partnering with a few amazing local businesses and will be doing a raffle giveaway every hour! Everyone who shows up will be given a free ticket and additional tickets will be given out at the food trucks with every item purchased! Before you leave the party make sure to put on a few silly props and grab a selfie with your squad at our pop up selfie booth to create a memory that will last forever!
We hope to see you at First Friday as we come together for the block party of the year! We are located at 318 B Street on the corner of 2nd and B Street just a block from downtown! For any questions, or for more info, check out our website at www.thestoryashland.org!
