Grab a bite from a food trailer at one of the mobile eateries before hitting the river. Enjoy a freshly crafted dinner at a local restaurant then stroll the Downtown Square to catch live music or an adult beverage from a rooftop view. From home-cooked treats and comfort food, to international cuisine, and lunch on the go, you’ll find just what your belly is looking for.
