Food and drinks for sale at 5:30 p.m. No outside food and drinks, please. Music starts at 6:30 p.m.
Special Pre-Concert Event! 12-3 p.m. Thanks to our friends at D & L Garden Center, you can enjoy a special treat designed for children! Renowned artist David Zinn will be creating his amazing drawings, composed entirely of chalk, charcoal and found objects. His temporary creations are always improvised on location. Zinn’s art has achieved global attention, gracing the subway platforms of Manhattan, village squares in Sweden, and as far away as the street corners in Taiwan. Music provided by Mirror Image, entertainment by Carissa Knowles, and food by Dawgs on the Run. Cost is $5 per person.
