The Marketplace at Armstrong Park, in collaboration with the Institute of Community Development (icdnola.org), will offer fresh and prepared foods, and a variety of food trucks will be on hand to add to the array of menu choices.

Music runs from 4 - 8PM this season, as Jazz in the Park welcomes a select group of pre-opening acts to its stage.
