Lynchburg VA - Lynchburg is gearing up for a night that honors all women at the Downtown Diva Crawl on Friday.
During this event, divas will get a tote bag filled with goodies, discounts and accessories. Then, they get to visit several businesses downtown to shop and eat.
This year, there are 50 businesses taking part. The event is free, but if you want to get your hands on a free goodie bag, you have to go early. Tote bags will be given out to the first 500 divas.
"It's a great way to know what's going on in downtown Lynchburg, to get an idea of what restaurants and retailers are down here, some really unique places and get some great shopping deals," said Anna Bentson, executive director of Lynchburg's Landing.
An after party will take place at the Craddock Terry Hotel at 8 p.m.
The crawl will begin at the Lynchburg Community Market at 5 p.m.
