FLORENCE — First Friday in downtown Florence is going to look a lot like Christmas this week.

Santa will be seated at Mobile Plaza and Court Street. Listerhill Credit Union will be providing free pictures with Santa. SnowMasters also will provide artificial snow for the event.
First Friday is 5-8 p.m. on Court Street.
More Christmas activities are planned for Saturday. The tree-lighting ceremony for the Florence Christmas, which follows a downtown Christmas Open House for merchants, is set for 6 p.m. The Forest Hills Elementary School show choir will perform at the tree lighting. The Saturday events are sponsored by Florence Main Street.
