The monthly event is from 6 to 9 p.m. the first Friday of each month.
This Friday, fans are invited to come out and show their team spirit by wearing their favorite team’s gear, said Kyle Bennett, director of Tourism and Visitors Center Operations for the Woodstock Downtown Development Authority.
“For each Friday Night Live theme, participating downtown merchants have activities going on at their stores and throughout the downtown area related to the theme of the month. Sept.7 is the Great Downtown Tailgate,” Bennett said.
The Great Downtown Tailgate will feature the LKT Sports Art Cornhole/Bean Bag Toss Tournament, Bennett said in a release.
The tournament will feature 24 two-person teams. First place and runners-up will receive prizes from LKT Sports. To register for the tournament, call LKT Sports at (678) 494-4303 or stop by the store.
LKT Sports Art will also be celebrating its 12th anniversary with special sales, refreshments and all sorts of fun in addition to the cornhole/bean bag tournament $100 Downtown Gift Certificate Giveaway.
“Every $10 you spend at a downtown business during Friday Night Live can enter you into a drawing for a $100 Downtown Dollars Gift Certificate,” Bennett said. “Just bring your receipt for any purchase made at a downtown business during the event to the Woodstock Visitors Center to enter the contest.”
Those heading to downtown will also find entertainment.
Both Seven Arrows Art Gallery and Cupcakelicious will feature live music in front of their stores.
Copper Coin Coffee will feature musician Cory Welch from 8 to 10 p.m.
Threads will be giving away glowing yo-yo balls and other glowing goodies as well as tickets to the Atlanta Falcons home opener to a lucky customer. Everyone making a purchase this week at Threads and Branch Boutique can enter. One customer will be chosen at random.
