First Friday To Close Pugh Street, Feature Outdoor Dining

Part of downtown State College will transform Friday evening for the Downtown State College Improvement District’s monthly First Friday event.

The borough will close off Pugh Street to traffic between College and Beaver Avenues from 5 to 9 p.m. for the night’s festivities. The street will instead be utilized for outdoor dining, performances, and other activities — a temporary pedestrian mall of sorts. Similar to Arts Fest, picture food from Spats, Bradley’s, or any other restaurant on the street having outdoor seating for a change.

This month’s event will focus on mental health awareness, with art installations seen at businesses throughout the borough. Large stopwatches with different designs by local artists will also be featured in store windows to remind people to “Take time to…,” based on the mental health awareness theme.

The event will also feature performances throughout downtown including venues on Allen Street and College Avenue in addition to several businesses staying open later for the night. For a full list of events and performances during the event, check out First Friday State College’s website.
