Greater Lafayette's First Friday event took place in conjunction with the Kickoff Bash this month. First Friday brings together local artists, musicians and vendors in downtown Lafayette on the first Friday of each month as a way for residents and visitors to rediscover downtown. This month, First Friday became part of the Greater Lafayette Kickoff Bash which is meant to curate the pregame experience for fans leading up to Purdue's first home football game against Oregon State Saturday. The kickoff bash featured signing opportunities with Purdue sports alumni and a memorabilia collectors showcase.
