Powering Up

Power Restored

However, like all utilities, we are susceptible to outages caused by bad weather, animals, equipment issues and more. This blog is designed to provide updates on what caused outages after service has been restored. Large-scale incidents will be posted in real-time on the City's Alert Center on our website homepage.

The original item was published from May 24, 2019 5:25 PM to June 1, 2020 12:00 AM

Participating Geneva merchants will extend their evening hours on First Fridays during the warmer months to give you more time to shop and explore the downtown. Mark your calendars for the next First Friday event from 5 to 8 p.m. June 7. 


Country Naturals will have a giveaway and spin the wheel for special discounts on First Fridays. Located at 316 Campbell St., this shop has unique farmhouse decor, candles, soaps, and wreaths. The store's locally made Sentiments in Stone would be a nice accent piece in a garden.

Both Anastazia and sister store Liz & Kate will offer a 25% discount off regular priced merchandise between 5-8 p.m. for June's First Friday. These vibrant stores at Dodson Place Courtyard are a great stop for a Girls Night Out. You can find decorative items for the home at Anastazia and trendy women's clothing and accessories at Liz & Kate.


Anastazia and Liz & Kate happen to be very close to Galena Cellars Winery & Tasting Room, which has fabulous patio seating. During First Fridays in June and July, Frankie Smiles will perform live music starting at 5 p.m. and complimentary Wine of the Month tastings will be served. If you prefer dessert, Kilwins Chocolates & Ice Cream is also located in the courtyard. Kilwins is open until 9:30 pm on Friday nights, and they have great big rocking chairs on their patio to rest your tired shopping feet.


The Coffee Drop Shop, located in the Berry House at 227 S Third St., will be giving away taste samples of flavored coffee and fresh-brewed ice tea for First Fridays. Berry House shops, including The Gathering and Little Red Barn Door, will also be open late on First Fridays. For more details about First Friday specials, check the social media page of each business and watch for store flags.

Moonlight Madness

Speaking of evening shopping, on Tuesday, June 18, the first night of Swedish Days, many of the shops will be open late with significant merchandise discounts. Mark your calendars to celebrate sweet home Geneva by exploring our shops during Moonlight Madness. Be sure to take a break at the Swedish Days' Craft Brew Tent, which will be open until 10 p.m. The local brews of Penrose Brewing Company and Stockholm's will be available on tap at Campbell Street west of Third Street. 


Evenings out sure become more welcoming with the warmer temperatures. We hope you will take a stroll in Geneva on the next First Friday when the boutique lights will be on and the doors open. It may be your lucky night!
