Durant Main Street is a program dedicated to revitalizing historic Downtown Durant by preservation, economic growth and a sense of community. Durant Main Street often organizes special events focused on bringing locally owned businesses and the community together. These events are great opportunities for students to connect with Downtown Durant.

Durant Main Street will be hosting their Fall First Friday event on Oct. 1 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. in Downtown Durant. There will be special deals from various shops, later shopping hours, fall desserts and even pumpkin decorating.

This will be a very casual event, due to future events requiring more funding.

Later shopping hours mean this is perfect for students to check out local boutiques since shops can not always accommodate busy schedules of college students.

Sarah Lewis, Director of Durant Main Street explained, “People will be able to rediscover Durant.”

Tabbitha Kniss, owner of Krahë said, “We will be serving mimosas and staying open until 7 p.m. so come on out and bring a friend!”

Another “shop and sip” option is Knotty Pine Boutique, located at 117 Market Square, who will be serving apple cider mimosas and having a 15% off storewide sale.

If you need something to fun and festive to do this Friday night, visit Downtown Durant to check out shops, taste a few fall treats and enjoy the uplifting atmosphere.
