Also available will be hamburgers and bratwurst from Palmer's, pulled-pork sandwiches from Smoky Joe's, smoothies from Robek's, salad and gazpacho from Michael Joseph's, and baked goods.

The Family Fun Zone will be filled with games and crafts. New this year is Zumba, hosted by Amber Allen from Flair Fitness in Darien.
