The Annual Black Friday Pajama Party will once again take place in historic downtown Fernandina Beach on Nov. 25, the day after Thanksgiving.
Fernandina Beach Main Street and the Historic Fernandina Business Association have a day planned of shopping, music, and fun from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.
Downtown merchants will be open for early shopping in your pajamas. Many will be offering special discounts and treats for shoppers. Pam Bell will entertain with a holiday bell concert at 10 a.m. in front of the Welcome Center. Fernandina Beach High School art students will be painting faces all day in the pocket park while Main Street volunteers will keep people warm with a hot cider booth.
The 2nd Street block party will include music by Michele Anders, Hupp & Ray, Amy Vickery, and Sam McDonald. Take Stock in Children volunteers will help with games and activities for the children. The much-anticipated Pajama Contest will take place at 11 a.m. on S. 2nd Street this year with a chance to win prizes donated by local merchants for Best Individual, Best Group, Most Creative, and Best Pet Pajamas.
