GARMA Celebrates 50 years for August First Friday
Chocolate Walk gives community sweet treat
Gettysburg Area Retail Merchants Association (GARMA) covered the community in a chocolate coating with its annual First Friday Chocolate Walk Feb. 4.
Just in time to prepare taste buds for Valentine’s Day, the First Friday Chocolate Walk encouraged everyone to meet their neighbors at local businesses and grab a sweet treat along the way.
New faces and old friends alike were welcome, despite the cold rain, to enjoy a walk around town and sample the delectable treats offered at local businesses.
First Friday Favorite Things Festivities
Gettysburg was the place to be with the many events happening around town this past First Friday! With the numerous people milling about and a plethora of opportunities to get into the Holiday spirit, it was a great night to get out and enjoy the festivities.
Don't worry though if you weren't able to come out and get stocked up on those stocking stuffers, there are still many more events coming up this season!
Pictured below are a few GARMA businesses decked out for the Holidays!
