First Friday in San Miguel de Allened

San Miguel de Allende announces the beginning or a monthly event that could revive the economy and enhance tourism, national and international in SMA. Many cities in North America adopted the tradition of First Friday "art walks", in which the town's art galleries and artists' studios will open their doors into Friday evening. The idea is that galleries will attract people to the downtown and enrich the art community by pooling their openings together into one monthly evening. Who will benefit? All the participating galleries in SMA plus restaurants, coffee shops, stores, street vendors, musicians and performance artists. Among the cities with art-oriented First Friday events are: Albany , Anchorage , Augusta , Bellingham , Binghamton , Burlington , Chicago , Columbus , Denver , Honolulu , Indianapolis , Juneau , Kalamazoo , Kansas City , Knoxville , Lincoln , Louisville , Las Vegas , Minneapolis, Scranton , Oakland , Philadelphia , Phoenix , Pittsburgh , R
