    Our sleepy little town really comes alive around 8 p.m. on Thursday through Sunday nights (some even start as early as 6 p.m.)  You’ll find Artisan’s who setup tables in the main square, musicians playing a variety of different instruments in the streets by the most popular restaurants, live music in a few of the restaurants like La Sirena, and, in the winter season, tango or salsa lessons at Pangea or Los Gauchos, to name a few.  And in the town square you can find performers, circus acrobats, dancers and activities scheduled by the town.

  • Shopping and Artisan wares

    You’d be surprised how many artists we have in our town; painters, jewelers, weavers, all sorts of fun and unusual things.  Saturday nights many of them setup their wares in the square.  There are a number of little shops around town and, of course, the Artisan’s Market 2 blocks south of the town square.  There is one jewelry store we recommend, a small shop where the owner will give you good prices.  Godfather’s Jewelry across from Tacos.com.  Links to our favorites will be added to this page soon.
