From cupcakes to Jamaican plates, pizza to tangy Louisiana treats, there should be no shortage of culinary delights. Admission is free; food samples cost between $1 and $4. Along with food, look for a kids zone with games, a quad bungee and inflatables. Local businesses also plan to set up booths to meet and greet festivalgoers.

The Super Run

You may have a few race T-shirts tucked in the back of the closet, but how many race capes do you have?

Participants are encouraged to dress as their favorite superhero, and those who finish the 5k race will receive a cape, bracelet and finisher’s medal. After the race, show off your super swag in an easy 1K fun run.
