In the two years since First Fridays Westchase launched, it's become one of the most popular events in the neighborhood. Now, FF goers will be able to take advantage of the fun for at least one additional Friday this year.
The event, which was usually extends from May to October, will now extend to November.
"The weather has been much warmer this year," said Dung To, general manager for World of Beer Westchase. "We wanted to see if families were still up to coming out even though it's a bit cooler. We love that outdoor vibe!"
World of Beer, located at 9524 W. Linebaugh Ave. in Westchase Town Center, has led the way in organizing the event. Maloney's Local Irish Pub and Tijuana Flats, also located in the center, are key sponsors as well.
The east side of Westchase Town Center is closed off for First Fridays. Outdoor bars, live music and games for children are also a part of the event.
Westchase businesses, not located in the center, also play a large role in making the event a success.
David Farrar, owner of Essentials Westchase Spa, has been a sponsor of the event this year and is looking forward to the extra month.
"We'll be there," he said.
The next First Friday is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 5, 5-9 p.m.
