Downtown Farmington will host a beach party August 12 as part of Farmington Second Fridays, when participating businesses stay open a little later and offer special discounts and activities.
The beach party theme will include tropical decor and a beach ball giveaway. Posters and chalk art stencils will identify participating businesses. A list is also posted at downtownfarmington.org.
In addition to the retail fun, this week’s Rhythmz in Riley Park free outdoor concert features Surf Zup, a beach party band playing music from the 1960s and 1970s. The concert starts at 7 p.m. in the park; if the weather takes a turn, it will move to First United Methodist Church, just north across Grand River. No food or drink is allowed inside the church.
