It's not much exaggeration to say that there are more things happening this Friday than have happened in all of October so far, and October's been a busy month.
First, the Delano Neighborhood Association has recruited a wide array of Delano businesses to participate in Delano Safe Treat. Take your kids (and even your pets) around the Neighborhood for goodies from various businesses, ending up at Riverside Harley where the DNA is hosting a trunk-or-treat. The number of things that are happening are too long to list - Thunder Dog will be at the Community Connection (Douglas and Vine), Symbolic Tattoo will be giving kids free tattoos (it's okay, they're temporary), All About Dogs will have pet treats, and more.
Oh, and of course it's also Final Friday, so there will be art exhibits too. Senior Services will feature senior artists, Delano Bed and Breakfast will feature the Fall Harvest edition of Jewelry Botanica, Friends University and Delano-adjacent Newman U will have exhibits, The Vagabond will feature Scott Iwig - and yes, lots more.
Maybe you prefer performing arts? If so, the Shamrock has no less than four bands at their Halloween party, and on the all-ages side the Delano BBQ Company will have live blues with Terry Harrison - as well as half-price kid meals for children in costume.
If somehow you get through all this and still have room for dessert, Milkfloat will be having their grand opening on Friday.
