During breaks between performances, enjoy shopping a marketplace of arts and crafts, gourmet food items and specialty products.  

 

While at the event, the Humane Society will have their "Big Mac" mobile adoption center onsite. Please take a few moments to stop by and say “hi” to the dedicated staff and meet their extended family of friends awaiting adoption.  Find a new companion and lend support to a wonderful and compassionate organization.

 

There you have it - RELAXATION at its best!!!  Treat yourself - you deserve it.  We will lay the feast, all you need do is come enjoy!
