Salisbury, MD: 3rd Friday is pleased to announce another night of socially-distanced shopping Downtown Salisbury on Friday, October 16, 2020. Check out all the action on N. Division Street and the Plaza, complete with live music and local art vendors. This month’s theme is Super Heroes – a fan favorite month that focuses on comics, cosplay and real-life heroes close to home.
This month’s Super Heroes theme wouldn’t be complete without costumes. Facemasks are required during the event, but costumes are encouraged, and greatly rewarded – just stop by the Ocean City Comic Con booth, next to PLB Comics, for some free prizes and giveaways to everyone in costume.
Can’t make it out? Community members can participate by sending in photography, cosplay or art inspired by super heroes to be shared online in the virtual event and in an recap email following the event.
On N. Division Street, you can enjoy live music by the Matthew Bennett Davey Band. Salisbury Fire Department will be out in full force for Fire Prevention Month, with cool equipment and real-life local heroes that can tell you all about being a firefighter.
Heroes come in lots of shapes and sizes; be sure to check out the Beyond Your Walls, Inc. shower trailer - that is restoring hope and dignity for those in need within our community. Meet the non-profit running the trailer and learn how you can help support the effort.
