"I was surprised to see that most people walk from their homes if they don't live too far away and parking is available across the street at the marketplace Center for free.” yelp
This is a great way to support the local city as many of the food vendors are from local schools, clubs and sports teams as well as City Rotary Club. Enjoy music throughout the day on three distinct stages with two kids zones.
