    First Friday was this evening. It all started at 4:30 p.m. with Volkswagens, shopping, and music.

    Oroville residents flocked to the downtown area to check out some cool cars and do some shopping. Businesses in the area even stayed open late, so people could take advantage of great deals all evening long.

    A brand new business took part in the festivities this month. Hillberry Heaven specializes in produce, jams, jellies, fruit butters, and dry mixes. They even provide free delivery in the Oroville area on Thursdays!

    The evening included a movie in the park and live music by 8 track attack, with the popular music guru, Glenn Dawson.

    First Friday is an event that is attended by many each month. The first Friday of October will include an antique fair in honor of Perry Mason Days.
