And, with a choice of more than a half dozen fine restaurants, festival-goers can savor Italian specialties, Asian-fusion delicacies, south of the border selections, gourmet sandwiches, pastries and coffee while dining al fresco or indoors. Meander through the art galleries, too, or, just relax and enjoy a glass of wine.
Smooth jazz and specialty music — perfect for an afternoon of strolling — will cheer festival guests. Bring the children for face painting, and, of course, dogs are welcome to hang out, too!
