First Friday is
always fun, but in April, it will be even “funner.”
That’s because April is
Fun Friday! Several community organizations will join downtown businesses on
Friday, April 7, bringing with them several fun activities.
And, if you stop by
Community First Bank, you can get set up for a whole summer of fun as they’ll
be getting kids signed up for the Community First Kid’s Club. Kids 14 and
younger can sign up for $10 for the whole Kokomo Jackrabbits season and receive
a free T-shirt, dug out seats to Sunday home games, 15 percent off at the
merchandise store and more. And, to make it even more fun, Jax, the team’s
mascot, will be on site to greet First Friday guests.
