SEE PLAY ON PAGE 15 COSHOCTON – Our Town Coshocton’s First Fri- day season has rolled back around. “An important piece of main street organi- zations is bringing awareness to downtowns,” said Barb Karr, president of Our Town Co- shocton. “We need people to come out and see what we have.” The downtown fun will kick off with First Arts Friday from 5 to 8 p.m. on Friday, May 5 with the Dogwood Youth Arts Chalk & Roll being organized by the Pomerene Center for the Arts. Bring your bikes to the old Central Elementa- ry School lot at 724 Walnut St. at 5 p.m. and join the ride down Main Street at 5:30 p.m. Some decorations will be provided to participants, but people are encouraged to decorate on their own. Small prizes will be awarded to largest group, the clunker, and noisiest and best deco- rated. The Walhonding Rube Band will play as bike riders get ready and lead the parade down Main Street. The chalk art contest in the artPARK on Main Street is being organized by the Pomerene Center for the Arts and will feature four categories: Professional, amateur, youth (age 18 and under), and team. Professionals will have a 5x5 area to decorate and all others will be given a 3x3 space. There also will be three artists from the Ohio Chalk Art Guild demonstrating their skills. To register for the contest, visit the Pomerene Center for the Arts Facebook page where you can download a form. Designs should incorporate the bicycle theme of the event.
