Lighted souvenirs dazzle the eyes as vendors at the International Marketplace try to mesmerize you with souvenirs you can’t find anywhere else.
Not only is there shopping, there is entertainment! Street performers from magicians and two-man-bands to “Silver Statues” and teenage ukulele prodigies will have you stopping at every corner and clapping your hands to the music.
Be sure to be out on a Friday night and enjoy the free fireworks show!
