One of the HOTTEST variety shows in town, quite literally!
Start your weekend of Se7en Sins at this FREE First Friday event that kicks off a month of performances. (http://rvafirstfridays.com/)
Costumes and/or masks not required but certainly are a fun! One year we wore dresses and masks, another some folks wore sari's, and another we went as pirates, anything goes!
Like all First Fridays, the entire area will be alive with arts, live indoor and outdoor street performances. Inside Gallery 5, you'll be inundated with visual hedonism via genuine burlesque, magic, comedic, vaudevillian and other performances all night long.
Outside, your eyes will be treated to amazing fire dancing performances by some of the most talented fire dancers in the area and your ears will be entertained by the infamous PLF and their DJ's! (Party Liberation Front)
