First Friday Hop Gallery Tour – Where to go What to do and who to see! Times are set so people joining late can catch up with us. This tour will start at 5:30 and run until 10pm. You can join us at any time and any number of people may show up. You can also take the tour on your own time and at your own pace. The tour can be done on foot, using the free Zerobus “eco-trolley”, by car or by bike (your own or on a Louvello rental bike). If you prefer horseback that is fine too! However you prefer to travel as long as it is safe.
If you walk the whole tour it is roughly 5 miles round trip and takes about 2 1/2 hours if you don’t stop. If you spend 10-15 minutes at each gallery the tour takes a little over 4 hours, give or take an hour.
