    Downtown Phoenix Comes Alive! Live music, art, dancing, food, everywhere - outside in the streets and inside almost every establishment. The cooler, hipper version of the Scottsdale Art Walk.

    Make sure you bring your colostomy bag. I mean everyone has one of those right?

    Parking is 5$ in an empty lot right off Roosevelt on the right! Great food, lots of art, music, street shows! It's great!

    You can get away with $20, but you will probably want more

    The art is not really my type, but it's definitely a fun thing to try at least once. The food truck lines may look taunting, but trust me they are definitely worth it! I haven't had a bad time yet.

    First Friday is a lot of fun! Check out the local artists and vendors; you may find a cool painting to hang on your wall! Also come with an appetite, there are food trucks there.

    Interesting crowd but a fun thing to go to every once in awhile. You really get to see some of the Phoenix culture and all for free!

    Some seem to check in on days other than 1st Friday. Other than that it's a very cool event. Resident dj's need to come more.

    Cheap and unorganized event comprised of various paintings, arts and crafts, jewlery, clothes, musicians, scultptures, etc. located downtown. Kind of a disappointment and doesn't live up to the hype.

    My first First Friday on January 7, 2011. Beautiful evening. Lots of food, music and art. Had a great time on Walter the Bus. And just wandering around.

    It's NOT an "ART WALK" if there are people in booths who are selling incense they didn't even make. TOO COMMERCIAL.

    Inexpensive hot dogs, free shows with professionals, such as, Capoeira dancers. They start at 7:30 p.m. on 5th St. There are also singers, trick masters, local art, and posh jewelry for $5.

    May I be the first to say: I knew First Friday, and you, sir, are no First Friday. Just not like the old days.

    Only time each month when PHX comes alive. It's getting bigger and busier, but luckily not spoiled yet.
