The First Friday arts and cultural festival entered the downtown scene in 2002 as a grass-roots collaboration between a handful of businesses and art spaces. In the early days, it attracted a few hundred people. Now, the event stretches more than 20 blocks and draws as many as 10,000 people. We'll take a look at the festival's future as it celebrates its tenth anniversary.
