The Downtown Fort Walton Beach Organization kicks off its 7th Annual Ladies Night Out… Downtown Thursday, Nov. 9, from 5 to 8 p.m. This event takes place four times a year in the Downtown Fort Walton Beach business district. It’s FREE to all ladies with complimentary drinks and food.
Ladies Night Out…Downtown is a progressive event that starts at a downtown business, makes stops at other downtown businesses, and ends up at DeFrance Antiques at 230 Eglin Parkway. Participants pick up a stamp card at any participating business and collect stamps at the other businesses involved. At the last stop, participants turn in their stamped card for a chance at fabulous prize drawings.
Each downtown business participating in Ladies Night Out…Downtown will have a beverage and snack, along with some type of special coupon or discount. There are lots of door prizes that include gift certificates, ladies’ inspired gifts, and gift baskets. Raffle tickets will also be sold for prize drawings.
Downtown businesses that are participating on Nov. 9 are Three Dogs and a Chick, who offer fun, healthy and unique items for pet lovers; Garden Street Fabrics, focusing on home décor; Liz Fashions, who sell women’s clothing, swimwear and accessories; Sacred X-pressions Tattoo Studio, who create professional tattoos and body piercings; Artesano Boutique, showcasing exceptional local artists; and DeFrance Flea Market and Antiques, who sell handmade and vintage items, antiques, art and more. Many other downtown businesses put out specials as well.
The last Ladies Night Out… Downtown brought in an estimated 150-200 participants. There is plenty of parking available downtown, particularly at DeFrance, the final stop. It’s a great night out for the ladies and helps local businesses at the same time. What’s more fun than ladies getting together, shopping, and enjoying an adult beverage?
