Thursday Squared Food Truck Rally –  Held the second Thursday of each month around Munn Park from 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm, people flock to the  20+ gourmet food trucks to buy dinner then enjoy it picnic style in the park.  Often, there is entertainment and activities accompanying the great food.

Holiday Walkabout – Scheduled on Tuesday, November 14, 2017 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. Nearing its third decade, the Walkabout is a great way to celebrate the holiday season.  Holiday music and activities get everyone in the swing.  A free carriage ride around Munn Park is a family favorite.
