June’s Fridays after Five event is on June 21 from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. on the Square in Downtown Athens.

Fridays After Five is an event catered to the family to dine, shop and enjoy live entertainment while appreciating the historical aspect of downtown Athens.

The second Fridays After Five will feature six different food trucks, BBQ, hotdogs, stuffed potatoes, and Cajun! Each Fridays After Five event this year has a unique theme; this week is all about Friendship. What better way to visit food trucks than with your friends? Kid Zone’s will once again be set up on various sides of the Square. Bring your friends and make friendship bracelets, color, receive cool prizes and more!

Amy Higginbotham, the owner of Trinity’s, said, “Fridays After Five is such a fun event for the family and by staying open later it gives us exposure to a crowd that we may have otherwise missed.”
