The American Independence Museum will be hosting a number of activities, including a Redhook Brewery beer night in the Folsom Tavern with live music, colonial games for kids, and free tours of the museum.  The Exeter Arts Committee will also play a very active roll in “Extown Walks”, hosting the opening receptions in the 2nd Floor Gallery at Exeter Town Hall, as well as sponsoring the “Bandstand Live” music series with performances from some of the region’s finest recording artists. The Seacoast Artist Association will also be hosting a gallery reception for their monthly “theme show challenges”, with guests invited to enjoy light refreshments while casting votes for their favorite pieces of art.  Stairway To Heaven Comics is offering a special edition of their weekly “Cartooning With Katie” art class at 4pm, giving parents the option to drop off their children ages 6 to 12 for an hour while they walk downtown. 

There will be lots of other activities as well.  For more information on other happenings on First Fridays, check out TEAM on Facebook
