(Scroll down for more helpful downtown news beyond the Grand Market!)
Our Line-up of Kid-Friendly Performers continues for the third week when Graham Clarke makes his debut at the Grand Market. His show of favorite songs and silly humor is guaranteed to put everyone, of any age!, in good spirits.
Plus, this week is perfect for dining al fresco at one of our cheerful tomato red bistro tables. You’ll have your choice of falafel sandwiches or salad bowls from All You Can Pita, sweet or savory crepes from La Maison Bretonne, or the famous hotdogs (try the pretzel bun!!) from Walter’s!
Please note that our ping pong tables are currently out of service, but the rest of our lawn games will be there.
