7pm- The Trail of ’98 with live musical accompaniment from Mark Tipton!
One of the very last of the great films of the Silent Era will be brought to stunning life without the actual cold of the Klondike central to The Trail of ‘98–through the magic of film and trumpeter Mark Tipton’s original score, performed live at MFC. Actually shot in part on location in Alaska at heights of 11,600 feet and with -60 temperatures, The Trail of ’98 follows fortune hunters from more temperate climes seeking a strike a mere 30 years before the film was made. They find beauty, adventure, astonishing hardship…and even for a lucky few, perhaps love and/or gold. To reserve a ticket, click here.

Greene Block + Studios (18 Main St)

5pm- Jazz Concert with Danie Ocean
Danie Ocean is a uniquely talented singer/songwriter/multi instrumentalist based in Philadelphia. With early roots in RnB and soul, Danie has also explored rootsy folk and rock and roll, and incorporates all these elements with jazz, hip-hop and avant-garde touches added to the mix. Danie Ocean’s music is a marriage of an extraordinary and multi faceted 3+ octave vocal range with a writing style that is wise, heartfelt, deeply personal and unflinchingly honest.

What are First Fridays?

First Fridays celebrate the vibrant creativity in Waterville through a wide array of arts experiences. On the first Friday of every month, visit Main Street in downtown Waterville to meet artists, see performances, listen to live music, eat delicious food, shop at local businesses, enjoy the arts, and come together as a community.

Interested in First Fridays?

Whether you are an artist, musician, or local business owner in downtown Waterville, we hope you will participate in First Fridays. This is a great opportunity to showcase your art or promote your local business as the community comes together each month. If you are interested in participating, promoting your event, or offering a discount on Frist Fridays, we would love to talk with you.
