I love 2nd Friday in June…how about you?

By on June 19, 2019

It was a warm and brisk night as shoppers from all over the area made their way to the streets of downtown Lititz on June 14 for the town’s monthly 2nd Friday event.

All around, the area was filled with busting streets as visitors sipped wine, listened to music, and took advantage of the countless special events and promotions that businesses up and down the streets had to offer.

And there was lots going on!

On North Broad Street, Wilbur Chocolate had free samples of hand-dipped chocolate covered marshmallows.

Warwick graduate Burns Weaver provided great tunes in front of Wilbur Chocolate.

Pebbles and Lace on Main Street held a special event Friday evening. It was a means to raise funds and awareness for Stormy’s Troopers, who are working towards a cure for ALS. Shown here is (left to right) Kat Woodcock and Melissa Hagman who helped coordinate the event.

Molly and Aaron Lucas of Lititz brough along their daughter to check out the sights and sounds of 2nd Friday.

At Wilbur Chocolate on North Broad Street, Lititz native Burns Weaver played acoustic tunes outside on his guitar while guests inside indulged in Wilbur Chocolate dipped handmade marshmallows.

Making our way back onto Main Street, the gorgeous fairy garden of Pebbles & Lace beckoned to us. Meeting us at the gate was Melissa Hagman, who was collecting donations for the ALS Foundation. For a small monetary donation, visitors could make their way through the business’ pretty gardens and take in the wonderful array of plants and flowers, all bursting with bright summer colors.

Further down Main Street, we stopped into Sugar Whipped Bakery, but not before speaking to Abbie Bitting-Ellis, who was selling her artwork that evening in front of the shop.
Josiah’s Oils, located at 79 E. Main St., hosted several young entrepreneurs for the Kidz Biz Expo. Some of the creations by these talented young individuals included cookies, brownies, bath bombs, soaps, and artwork. The kids were both proud and very eager to show off their hard work, and rightfully so — the items they created were both delicious and amazing!
