Downtown Inc is expanding its First Friday program in York.

The program encourages downtown merchants, restaurants, cultural venues and other businesses to stay open late, offer discounts and present special events on the first Friday of every month to help drive traffic to the area.

Downtown Inc next month will begin offering funding subsidies to retailers and restaurateurs who want to offer entertainment, refreshments or activities to customers during First Friday events, according to a statement.

First Friday activities also will begin earlier this year, at 4 p.m. Parking meters in the downtown area will be free starting at 5 p.m. on these days, as well, thanks to a partnership with the city, the statement said.

Downtown Inc is a nonprofit that works to revitalize and encourage reinvestment in downtown York.
