Lots of booths, food and musicians. If you're visiting and forgot to buy gifts for your friends back home, this is a great place to shop.

This is a great evening if you are here on a Thursday night. There are a lot of vendors out with things like crafts, food etc. A good way to spend a few hours and mingle with the locals.

We went to the Village Fest on a night when there were tons of kids trick or treating. The crowds were really large making if difficult to get around. However there was a lot of food vendors and really unusual booths.
