Summer open air music and food truck event was great. If you go, bring some lawn chairs or blankets to sit on. The food options were plentiful and delicious. You could even bring your own picnic if you prefer. Finding good parking can be challenging but not impossible. I think these events are the first Friday evening of each month during the summer. We had a nice time with friends and family. The event was free except for the food and drinks we purchased. 👍🏽

Excellent, freeoutdoor summer concerts and variety of food trucks. All genres of music represented. Bring your lawn chairs and be prepared for an entertaining evening of live bands. Each concert ends in the crowd-pleasing Electric Slide. The night I attended, a Soul Train Line capped off the evening with a DJ spinning tunes from the 70s to current hip hop. Something for everyone. Diverse crowd. Racially diverse and people of all ages. Safe environment. Just a wholesome, good time. Mark your calendar for next summer's Friday concerts. You won't regret it.

Cool area of downtown that was hosting a concert when we were there. We didn’t find it to be very big but it was a nice centralized park area with a playground, cover for farmers market, nearby restaurants, and grassy areas.

I really had a good time at the Juneteenth event, fashion show could’ve been more prompt. There was a singer, idk who she was; she announced herself but, the sound on the lawn wasn’t great. Other than that, keep up the good work guys. (Just add a couple speakers to the lawn so the ones sitting in the shade could enjoy)

Farmers' Market here is excellent. Plenty of fresh produce, flowers, pastries and breads from local shops, eggs, cheeses, meats...and a little bit of everything else. Great little diversion on a Saturday morning. I know they sometimes have other events here as well but I mainly patronize the Farmers' Market. Hot tip: there's a big parking lot off Morris St right around the corner....a very short walk away and much easier than hunting for street parking right next to it.

I had a wonderful experience at the Home Depot. The website was accurate as to the amount of the products that I needed and the location in the store. The employees were extremely willing to help when I needed. They were also available to help me load my items into my car. This will definitely be my go to Home Improvement store.

It’s always a fun time at the park whether there is a festival or market! The food hall is also right there which makes for a nice day out to grab some food and enjoy the park.

Nice international festival with vendors. Not super crowded. Music, drummers and other performers. Easy to set up your own chair and take advantage of the good weather. There were a couple of food trucks and some drink stations. Had a great time.
