Crowds and stress and waking up at dawn on Black Friday? No thanks! Why not choose to spend your hard-earned dollars to support your local small-business owners in our Lewiston-Clarkston Valley instead? Plaid Friday is the relaxing and enjoyable alternative to the big-box store Black Friday chaos. Wear plaid and visit local and independently owned businesses as we kick off the holiday season. Those sporting plaid will be eligible for giveaways, discounts and other fun activities throughout the day at participating locations. Registration opens Nov. 1.
