Downtown Goshen announces April First Fridays Spring Into Action event

GOSHEN, Ind. - Downtown Goshen, Inc. announced its upcoming April First Fridays Spring Into Action event which will take place Friday in downtown Goshen from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., and consists of activities for kids and adults, with participating merchants, shops, bars, and eateries donating 10% of all purchases during the event to partnering nonprofits and charities.

There will be entertainment, and a wide array of options for participants to eat, drink, and shop for a good cause.

Among some of the Spring Into Action participants, like the Italian-inspired eatery, The Table at 108, are raising funds for the Goshen Community Schools Foundation.

Soapy Gnome, which specializes in handcrafted soaps and body products, will raise money for the Maple City Health Care Center.

Offering its line of eco-friendly products that support sustainability, The Green Bee will contribute funds to the Goshen Farmer's Market.

“Being together downtown and having fun with our friends and neighbors and, at the same time, supporting local businesses and benefitting charities in our community, that's what First Fridays is all about," says Director of First Fridays, Amanda McMahon.

McMahon also stated, "Our Spring Into Action event is an especially good time because things are usually warming up with the change of seasons. People are feeling eager to get out of the house and get back out into the Goshen community, and get back into the swing of things."

You can get into the swing of spring with GoDance Studio which offers an hour-long west coast swing dance lesson from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., with donations going to Lacasa, a nonprofit housing agency.

A springtime coloring session for kids will be held at The Imagination Spot, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., with proceeds going to ADEC Inc., a non-profit that advocates for and serves people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
