Star Wars fans and those who love the fall will appreciate the activities of October First Friday in Downtown Camas. The theme is “Pumpkin Pageant and Star Wars Costume Contest!” with events happening all week starting on September 27th and going through First Friday, October 2, 2020.
This year both virtual activities and after-hours shopping, art shows and dining will be offered.
A new pumpkin or Star Wars-inspired game or activity will be posted on the Downtown Camas First Friday Facebook Page every morning and the winners from the activities throughout the week will be announced on the Facebook Live event on First Friday at 5:00 PM. Watching and participating enters you to win downtown merchant gift cards and other prizes as well.
Here are the daily activities:
Sunday: Star Wars Trivia and Caption This
Monday: Autumn Word Search & Jumble and Seek & Find the Star Wars Characters in downtown
Tuesday: Which Star Wars Episode?
Wednesday: Pick & Pic! Choose your favorite Star Wars character and post a pic of a cool Star Wars inspired pumpkin
Thursday: Post a pic of you in your Star Wars Costume. Prizes will be given for Best Adult and Best Kid Costume
Friday: Pumpkin Pageant Merchant Passport–virtual or in person. Artfully carved pumpkins will be on display on Thursday and Friday in participating merchant locations and you vote for your favorite (passports will be posted on Thursday morning and are due by 3:00 PM on Friday). The merchant that gets the most votes wins a prize.
Participants have until 3:00 PM on First Friday to complete each of the activities to be entered to win downtown gift cards and prizes.
“We would of course love to be in downtown all together for this favorite First Friday theme but this will still be a fun way to engage!” says Carrie Schulstad, the Executive Director of the DCA. “We love the fall and we love Star Wars and have such creative merchants doing the pumpkin pageant. We thank iQ Credit Union for continuing to sponsor the costume contest as they have for many years. It’s a joy for us to see what people post and contribute.”
All the First Friday details and instructions can be found here and on the daily posts on the Downtown Camas First Friday page starting Sunday, September 27th.
First Fridays are Art, Activities, Dining, and After Hours Shopping themed family friendly events coordinated by the DCA each month of the year to support downtown and develop community and are being held partially virtually until fully in-person First Friday events are again possible.
