This week’s 3rd Friday in Downtown Salisbury will be held outdoors with artists and crafters filling the streets, live music, and special events. This month’s theme is Super Heroes -- so get ready for comics, cosplay and real-life super heroes.
Costumes are encouraged this 3rd Friday and rewarded -- just look for the 7-foot-tall inflatable Batman and you will find the 3rd Friday Prize Wheel.
Costumed participants can spin the prize wheel for a chance to win big -- including specially curated prizes courtesy of Ocean City Comic Con.
Not costumed? -- that’s OK too. Compete in feats of strength for chances to spin.
Kids can also enjoy super-hero-themed crafts courtesy of Salisbury University’s Honors College, practice super-hero poses with Big Brothers Big Sisters, and meet real-life heroes from the Salisbury Fire Department, who will be out in full force for Fire Prevention Month.
Entertainment abounds with live music by The New Kings of Delaware on the North Division Street stage, plus a special Halloween performance by local dance troupe Feet of Fire at 6 p.m.
SBY’s “Movies On The River” is hosting its free Halloween Double Feature with “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” (PG) at 7 p.m. and Guardians of the Galaxy (PG-13) at 9 p.m. at the Pohanka Riverwalk Amphitheater.
Revival, Salisbury’s all-new entertainment venue, is hosting the Delaware Comedy Theater for a night of adult improv comedy, with tickets only $15 and a showtime at 8 p.m.
Shoppers always have fun at 3rd Fridays, with street vendors and local retailers. This month, Lilac Clothing Co. has 20 percent off new fall styles, a prize-pumpkin full of discounts up to 50 percent off and a free gift with purchases over $100.
The MudHud: Clay Art Studio has lots of Halloween themed Paint-Your-Own-Pottery in stock and on sale, plus check out their Clay and Karaoke event from 5 to 10 p.m.
Art fans, check out Salisbury University Art Galleries exhibition FLOW, that celebrates art evolving from a sentient experience rather than conscious thought, and includes painting, sculpture and immersive installations.
Salisbury Art Space will also be open with an all-new exhibition titled Contemporary Abstraction, with an awards ceremony and special reception on 3rd Friday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Both Salisbury Art Space, and Salisbury University Art Galleries are located in the SU Building on the Plaza.
3rd Friday will no longer require facemasks for outdoor activities, but please remember masks could still be required inside.
The Downtown Trolley will be offering free rides to 3rd Friday to students, faculty and staff, running a continuous loop from SU Academic Commons to 3rd Friday from 4:45 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. The 3rd Friday virtual event on Facebook will continue to share event and community highlights for those who choose to continue to social distance.
3rd Friday is a Downtown economic development initiative and a project of the Salisbury Arts & Entertainment District, in partnership with the city of Salisbury. For More Information: 3rdFridaySby.com.
