Main Street Delaware’s First Friday Petwalk In Pictures.

Downtown Delaware, Ohio went to the Dog’s last Friday Night for Main Street Delaware’s Petwalk. The City of Delaware was out with their BIG TRUCKS and cool equipment, and let the kids climb all over. Dog’s EVERYWHERE having a good time sniffing, eating, drinking, and…. well doing what dogs do out doors.

Talking with the Director of Main Street Delaware, Frances Jo Hamilton, they will be closing off parts of Sandusky Street for this event in the future, which seems to work well!

Delaware, Ohio – Main Street Delaware’s Sept. 5 First Friday celebration will feature the third annual downtown pet walk, a hands-on display of public works equipment, and a new teen area featuring a DJ.

Registration is available now for the pet walk, sponsored by Frontier Communications. The cost is $10 per pet, which nets the pets (and their parents) a treasure map to downtown businesses providing special treats along with a doggie bag to collect their loot. The pet walk will be held from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., stepping off from the Main Street Delaware office at 20 E. Winter St., Delaware.

As they check-in, registered pets will be photographed for posting in a Main Street Delaware Facebook album. The pet receiving the most “likes” will be named the “Furry Marshal” of Main Street Delaware’s Nov. 23 Christmas Parade.

Pet walk registration will be limited to the first 100 animals. Registration is available now at Button Up, 29 N. Sandusky St.; on the night of the event at the Main Street Delaware office; or online at

The City of Delaware Public Works Department also will be downtown for the Sept. 5 First Friday event. Children will be able to see some of the department’s equipment, and maybe help with using a back loader and dump truck to move some dirt.

New for September’s First Friday is a teen area hosted by the William Street Lighthouse Youth Program. The teen area will offer free food, dancing, and games. In addition, DJ Matt Ryan will provide music and entertainment for the evening. All are welcome!

September First Friday…A Perfect Evening!

PattiLast night was as nearly perfect an evening as you could ask for. Your humble staff again did what it does best…get out and visit with our people! The weather was ideal and atmosphere was a buzz of energy. The theme of the night was Pet Walk so we encountered leashed four legged friends every few feet of our journey.
