sBRITT | The Harvest Hoedown — in its fourth year — took place on Thursday, Oct. 19. Participating downtown businesses, including stores and restaurants, were open later for the event.

The event allowed in-town and out-of-town residents, who work during the day, the opportunity to patronize the downtown stores during the expanded hours.

Many businesses had in-store specials for patrons during the evening.
