Repairs have been completed, and the square was filled with art on display, live music, and a group of young dancers practicing. The surrounding shops and galleries fun to explore.

We were down here for the Art Walk on a Thursday evening. The mix of locals and tourists, artisans, dance troupes, street food and restaurants was neat to experience.

We had a wonderful time watching the local celebration. There were booths and a costume competition. We didn't understand everything but it was colorful and fun.

It's all about families. Around dusk there are several groups of children of different ages collected in groups being instructed in local daces. All the children were laughing and having a good time. Open air bars and entertainment happened later in the evening.
