One of the coolest things about Portland is the incredibly rich artistic scene here, and at no time is that presence more visible, then at the First Friday Art Walk.

As we ease into our Spring here in Maine and the temperatures rise, more and more vendors, gallery's and creative people take to the streets with the beautiful and sometimes, the weird.

The First Friday Art Walk is a staple of the Portland Maine art scene and is a popular gathering place for college students and families alike. The art walk spans most of downtown Congress Street and features bands, art, street performers and so much more. And at the very least, you'll get to feel cultured and definitely entertained

In case you're still unsure if you should come check it out (and by the way, you should!) here's a couple more fun photos from past First Friday's!
