Outside, kids can color and play at a craft station.
The Pepper Mill Café offers a garden bar with wine, beer, non-alcoholic beverages, and light foods for sale. Attendees are welcome to bring their own picnics, blankets, chairs, and even dogs (but no alcohol, please). Concerts move indoors during inclement weather.
