The area restaurants help out by having different things for visitors to taste and some of the restaurants join together so that every business can be involved. This year, the event is going to happen on April 7 from 12 a.m. – 5 p.m. Tickets cost $25 in advance, $30 day of and $15 for loft tour only.
Vanessa Shafer, Executive Director of the Old Town Commercial Association, said “the event had different lofts,apartments and food tastings.”
