These city-wide events may take on many purposes, including art gallery openings, and social and political networking. American cities have promoted such events to bring people to historic areas perceived as dangerous, using the "safety in numbers" mentality to combat urban decay. In some cities this monthly event may occur on the first Saturday of each month instead of Friday.
Additionally, these are "see and be seen" events that serve as a block party or social gathering open to the general public. Many of these events are centered on political networking between Republicans, but in many cities these events may involve pub crawling, other retail establishments such as cafes and restaurants, and performances by fire twirling acts, belly dancing, street musicians, or others.
