TROY, N.Y. » This month’s Troy Night Out fes­ti­val is set to wel­come stu­dents and fall fash­ion trends to Troy’s down­town dis­trict.

All are wel­come to shop, dine, ex­plore and get ready for the new school year dur­ing Au­gust’s Troy Night Out from 5 to 9 p.m. this Fri­day in down­town Troy.

This month’s event theme is Stu­dent Wel­comeFest, as the city’s col­leges are invit­ing stu­dents back to cam­pus.

Those stu­dents can both dis­cover and re­turn to down­town Troy as the com­mu­nity cel­e­brates the end of sum­mer and start of fall.

Down­town Troy shops will of­fer many spe­cial stu­dent dis­counts through­out the dis­trict, along with op­por­tu­ni­ties to get to know the lo­cal small busi­nesses.

Fur­ther­more, fall is an ex­cit­ing time of the year in re­tail- a new sea­son of fash­ion! A Troy Night Out Fash­ion Show will in­cor­po­rate a va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent down­town bou­tiques as they jump into the fall fash­ion sea­son. Pro­duced by Gwen­dolyn Hayles of Cre­ative Di­rec­tions, fash­ion show will be­gin with mod­els leav­ing par­tic­i­pat­ing bou­tiques for a down­town walk, end­ing

at Mon­u­ment Square for a fi­nal pre­sen­ta­tion hosted by An­toinette Law­son of Women With Voices, LLC.

Af­ter­ward, there will be a Mix ‘n Min­gle with mu­sic pro­vided by DJ Mr. Mo, a Troy High School English teacher. Or­ga­niz­ers said this event not only high­lights the di­verse looks to shop for in down­town Troy, but aims to con­nect Troy High se­niors with lo­cal col­lege stu­dents to aid in their re­search for col­leges.

Par­tic­i­pat­ing BID bou­tiques in­clude An­nick De­signs, Aurora’s Bou­tique, Cop­per Fox, Nine Steps Away to Africa, Saw­tooth Jew­elry Stu­dio, Topsy Curvy Bou­tique and Truly Rhe.

This Troy Night Out is also a time for fresh starts, with the de­but of AMC Jew­elry & Dé­cor new store­front on River Street, Flow­ers by Pe­sha’s new lo­ca­tion below the News Apart­ments, and a new decade for River Rocks Jew­elry & Bead Shop as it cel­e­brates a mile­stone 10th an­niver­sary.

Those pre­par­ing for the se­mes­ter ahead can visit Ace Hard­ware of Troy, Fun­cy­cled, Mar­ket Block Books, Troy Groom­ing Co., Kath­leen’s Fiber Arts and ZeBra Bras for spe­cial stu­dent dis­counts.

Stu­dents are also in­vited to re­fuel and get to know their dorm mates over a meal this Troy Night Out. Down­town eater­ies Be­spoki Bowl, Tara Kitchen and The Ruck are of­fer­ing stu­dent dis­counts.

Ad­di­tion­ally, stu­dents of all ages can en­joy live mu­sic at Troy Night Out. Elixir16 2nd floor is the se­cret space that you never knew about, the Celtic duo Law­son per­forms at Segel Vi­olins, and Rare Form Brew­ing Co. wel­comes Bobby Ken­dall with some “raw beats” and “sexy beets.”

This Fri­day, Aug. 31 will also be the fi­nal day to par­tic­i­pate in July’s Troy Night Out scavenger hunt “Where in Troy is Un­cle Sam?” and win a Down­town Troy Busi­ness Im­prove­ment Dis­trict Gift Bas­ket.
