Celebrate the Pirate football season with cold drinks, warm food, and good music!
The Freeboot Friday series was started in 2000 by the Uptown Greenville organization as a way to draw the sizable visiting East Carolina fan base into the center of Greenville for a night. The idea was simple: by presenting music, food, drinks, prizes and other offerings, it would draw people into the downtown district and, once there, make staying in the area for a night out an attractive choice.
That proved to be a successful formula. But it does not seem that the visiting fans make Freeboot Friday a successful event so much as city residents and those from the area who use the gathering as a place to reconnect with friends and neighbors. On a warm early evening, as the sun begins to set, there are few places better in Greenville to be.
