Get to know all the local businesses and non-profits in the business and organization block located on First Street. Be sure to also stop by the food court for an array of international foods and entertainment. Returning this year is our Beer, Wine, & Cider Garden located on Bonita Ave which will be serving local Craft Ales, Wine, and Cider from 11 am to 4 pm.

Don’t forget to stop by the village businesses on both sides of Indian Hill that will be open all day. This is the place to kick off your one-stop holiday shopping; you’ll find something unique for everyone on your list!
