It’s the last Final Friday of the summer, and the entire valley comes alive with entertainment, arts vendors, food trucks, and much more at the Valley Small Business District from 4 – 7 p.m. on August 31. This monthly event is the perfect way to wrap up another month, and in Juneau this means the last Friday of the year where the weather is temperate—and the most vendors are featured. It’s the perfect way to spend a relaxing evening enjoying food samples, live bands, and shopping for gifts and keepsakes.
