First Friday happenings for Jan. 2, 2015

The First Friday arts festival is scheduled from 5 to 11 p.m. Jan. 2 at venues throughout the 18b Arts District in downtown Las Vegas, near the intersection of Charleston Boulevard and Main Street. Organizers have canceled all outdoor activities due to the cold weather.

Preview Thursday, scheduled from 6 to 9 p.m. Jan. 1, offers a more low-key event, before streets are closed and booths are set up the following day, offering a chance to see many of the galleries and shows before the crowds descend.
