Supporting the Arts on First Night

Volunteers Thank You



Thanks to our Specialty Volunteer Teams:

Thanks to Last Year's Volunteers (Dec 31st, 2017).
This list will be updated at conclusion of this year's First Night.

These volunteers help the First Night Committee with our Special Events and behind the scenes support in so many ways. Many of our Special Events would not exist without the specialty volunteers who staff them - such as Face Painting, Childrens Art Studio, the Teen events, the Carnival Caper Costumed Road Race, and the Horse-drawn Wagon Rides.

Behind-the-scenes specialty volunteer crews also help the First Night Committee with setup of fencing, lighting, outdoor speakers, benches, and much more.

Thank you to all the Specialty Volunteers at the past year's event:
