13 year old granddaughter and I loved walking the street and seeing the jewelry and food and what everyone was selling and also going into the shops that are on the street as well. Lots of shopping was done.

Neat to see all the unique venders. Highlight is Lord of the Cello. Very busy. Good food choices. Go early to avoid crowds

There were a lot of food vendors, merchandise vendors and unknown singers. Lots of families, couples, and dogs around. If you’re into the type of scene it’s got a little bit of everything for everyone. Street parking is plentiful, didn’t have any problems.

There is a public lot toward the south end of downtown that doesn't appear to fill until around the dinner hour. If you get there by then you should be OK. Not that far a walk.
