Have you been to First Friday yet? The first Friday of every month is a great time to head down to Fifth Avenue Art Gallery and EGAD (Eau Gallie Arts District). We “open” all our exhibits on first Fridays. There is music and art in the park, and the Brevard Art Museum and other EGAD galleries are open too.
We hope to see you here!
