Peggy’s Candies and Gifts is hosting a Peter Pan themed First Friday with Pixie Dust fudge, Lost Boy milkshakes, and Rootbeer floats. They will also be having a treasure hunt around Wellsboro. If you find one of their painted rocks, bring it in to Peggy’s for a reward! There will also be a special guest from “From the Farm” with soaps, lotions, and other products. She will even have one of her baby goats for children to see!

At The Fifth Season, children can make a “Star-Spangled Wand.” There will be light refreshments for all, and seasonal clothing is tagged 15% to 50% off as part of their Sizzling Summer Savings sale!

Grubby’s Games will be doing two events:
1st: For young kids, they will be offering the ability to color a flag outside of the store.
2nd: For adults, teens, and older kids, they will be offering a chance to pull a prize out of a bowl by participating in playing Street Fighter 2 for the Super Nintendo. All you will have to do is play against a Grubby’s Games employee; winning is not a requirement to get a chance at a prize. The top prize is a Retron 1. The Retron 1 is a game system that plays all of your favorite NES games.
*1 chance at pulling a prize per person.

In My Shoes will be celebrating summer by giving $10 off summer shoes!
