Downtown to be hoppin' on First Friday

Downtown Hastings is typically a busy place but it could become even more frenetic the first Friday of each month.

Hastings First Friday, which kicks off this week, is a collection of activities the first Friday of the month coordinated by the Hastings Downtown Center Association.

The Downtown Center Association’s website lists dozens of activities happening during the event. Jessi Hoeft, director of the Downtown Center Association, said people have been surprised to hear about so much activity occurring in the same spot at the same time.

“To be honest with you, a lot of those things were going on anyway,” she said. “We just pulled them together. There always is a lot going on in downtown Hastings. It’s just that we spearheaded it this time and we’re just making people more aware of that.”
