Saturday is going to be a fun day Downtown!
It's Second Saturdays!
Things get started with Kids' Day at the Farmer's Market. Along with the bouncy house and other kid-themed activities, there will be some pygmy goats to pet. Sounds fun to me!
For those of you who head to the Farmer's Market simply for vegetables, parking can be a bit tricky on special event days. Here's a tip: Get there before 9am; the market opens at 8, so you'll have an hour to shop. Besides, it's cooler and there is more to choose from. When the park starts filling up with the kiddos, head to one of the Downtown cafes for a morning coffee and pastry.
I'm quite sure the shops up and down Broadway and University Streets will have Second Saturday specials, so remember to stop in.
The day will end with a Second Saturdays concert in the park. This month fiddler Betse Ellis will headline with an opener from Two Cents Worth. According to the newspaper, crowds are expected. Admission is free, but donations are welcomed. Bring a chair and enjoy the music. Things get started at 7:30.
I'll see you Downtown!
