When the working day is done, girls, they just want to have fun.
And there will be plenty of fun to be had downtown Winslow for the 12th annual Girls’ Night Out from noon to 9 p.m. Thursday, May 10.
“It’s a great excuse to have an afternoon and evening out with your daughter, your girlfriends and your best friends,” said Andrea Mackin, executive director of the Bainbridge Island Downtown Association who helped organize the event.
Girls’ Night Out, which is expected to draw approximately 300 women, extended its hours this year to 9 p.m. The annual event features special offers and deals at island shops for ladies out on the town. It is a time for girlfriends to let loose, shop, eat and play all while supporting local island businesses.
