News Release, Leonardtown Business Association

Leonardtown, MD- Love for our community (and all things green, in particular tasty beverages and colorful attire!) were definitely in the air on March 6th!

A big “thank you” to all who came out for opening receptions and workshops at the art studios, one-night-only specials at the shops and restaurants, live entertainment, and other activities and events.

A few highlights were: The Port of Leonardtown hosted musicians Crosby Crofod & Miles Gannett, fabulous door prizes, and the much anticipated seasonal arrival of the “Jolly Green Sangria” (pictured here).

Students from the Academy of Visual and Performing Arts (AVPA) Capstone program at Chopticon High School opened their new visual arts exhibit, running through March 31st, at the Leonardtown Arts Center.

The Old Jail Museum, one of First Friday’s newest participants, provided over forty fascinating mini-tours and the SoMar Drummers and friends brought the beat back to Town Hall for an hour of world drumming.

There is way too much to list here, just plan on joining us next time in Downtown and beyond!

Don’t forget to post your photos snapped at the newly updated spring “selfie bench” Downtown at the corner of Washington & Fenwick Streets, just add to your social media and tag with #loveltown!

Save the date for our next monthly event with the theme of “Hop & Shop First Friday” scheduled for April 3rd, 2020 from 5-8 PM, activities and details will be announced soon on the Leonardtown First Fridays Facebook page. The audience participation Drum Circle with the SoMar Drummers will also be continuing from 7-8 PM at the Town Hall.

A note of appreciation to the Town of Leonardtown, the Commissioners of Leonardtown, LBA business members, the SoMar Drummers, the First Friday volunteers, and Platinum Sponsors (The County Times, Leonardtown Chevy Buick GMC, Marrick Homes, Quality Built Homes, and Visit St. Mary’s) who all helped to make this yet another wonderful evening!
