October First Friday Gettysburg Style & Salsa on the Square

Published October 6, 2011

Today is a breath of fresh air! After a long, rainy few weeks, today’s sunshine is so refreshing. It is one of those fall days that just can’t get any better. The best part is, it’s not going away! This weekend is forecasted to be absolutely gorgeous with temps in the mid 70’s. We are thrilled since a fun Gettysburg tradition is being held this Friday -Salsa on the Square! Not to mention, it is First Friday Gettysburg Style and many merchants will be having special deals and events.

Check out last year’s video of First Friday October and Salsa on the Square! The street will be closed off for live salsa music by Hector Rosado and Orquesta A-CHE, dancing, food by local restaurants & caterers, children’s activities, and a Hispanic Heritage Month proclamation by Mayor Troxell.

Here are some other stops you will want to put on your list:
