The First Thursday Night Out is when neighborhood businesses stay open late and offer discounts on dining, drinks, retail, antiques and art. Local businesses will be displaying their Cooper Young “Unwrapped” decorations for a contest hosted by the CYBA. Our special guest judge this year is Shelby County Mayor Mark Luttrell. Mayor Luttrell will be making his final decision at 6:15 p.m. on this night along with prize presentation afterward.
At the gazebo, we have the Peabody School Choir under the direction of Jerry Sanders singing Christmas carols from 5:30 to 6 p.m., and Santa will be strolling about listening to holiday wishes and handing out candy. Be sure to stop by for some wonderful holiday cookies and cheer!
Stay to enjoy the delightful holiday sounds of the Memphis Men of Harmony chorus. The Memphis Men of Harmony are a group of male singers dedicated to the preservation and encouragement of barbershop harmony whose charter was established in 1946. They are a multi-award winning group with two recent district championships.
The Men of Harmony will be singing at the gazebo from 6 to 7 p.m.
Restaurants and retail shops will be open and offering a large assortment of holiday goodies to choose from. Come support local small business owners and enjoy our friendly neighborhood in the heart of Memphis! To see a listing of all our district businesses and locations, go to www.cooperyoung.com.
