While shopping is always a blast, you'll have to fuel up sooner or later. Food vendors will be there to satisfy your hunger pangs whether you're in the mood for a hearty lunch or a quick snack. Grab a bite from Silk Thai Restaurant, Rocklands Barbeque & Grilling Company, or Goodies Frozen Custard & Treats. And if an alcoholic beverage is what you crave, you can't go wrong with Belle Isle Moonshine!
In addition to the shops and food, there will also be face-painting and a boat that visitors are welcome to paint on. Any opportunity to use our painting skills is a win-win in our book, and kids and adults alike will definitely enjoy it.
