The event is Thursday, June 30, from 3 to 9 p.m. at participating merchants. Advance tickets are $20, but tickets are available on the day of the event for $25. Tickets can be purchased at the Chamber or any of participating businesses.

Admission includes a meal voucher that can be used at participating restaurants Thursday through Saturday, a coupon book with promotions and discounts from participating stores, a Girls Night Out T-shirt and a canvas logo bag.

The bag is new to the items each participant receives, which adds to the value of the tickets.

Door prizes will be drawn throughout the evening at each store as well.

More than 1,000 tickets were sold for last year’s event, said Katie Nations, program director for the Brookhaven-Lincoln County Chamber of Commerce.

“We’re hoping for that again,” she said.

Nations said many of the businesses are keeping their doors open after hours for the event and have planned fun surprises for their customers. It’s up to the shoppers to decide which businesses to visit. “You can go to any of them or all of them,” she said. “We have some people who power shop.”
