Stop by one of Monroe’s newest additions, Garth’s Brew Bar, for 20% off cans + bottles. Take those drinks to-go and make your way down the street to Chocolate Shoppe for a pumpkin sundae, because what’s a festival without beer + ice cream?
Parents — we all know half the joy of weekend events is tiring the kids out. This will be easily-accomplished with plenty of play activities for the little ones. Pogie the Yogie will have a kid’s yoga show at Trader Joe’s Commons, and Boulders is providing a free climbing wall at Lauer Realty. While the kids are occupied, sneak away to the 1800 block for a 10-minute massage from D-CHAI Thai Massage.
The Monroe Street Arts Center is opening its doors for a free open art studio all afternoon + putting on a music class for kids under five. This is in addition to balloon animals, face painting, + chalk stations throughout the fest.
