Come multiple times throughout the month or graze to your heart’s content all in one visit.”

There is no admission fee, and items are priced to entice at $4 to $16. Participating eateries are situated on Main, 5th, 6th,and State streets – all either on or just steps from Garland’s historic Square. Cool off with a Dr. Pepper slushie or some cotton candy iced tea, indulge in homemade Frito pie, or a churro flight or go all in for a deep-fried funnel cake spam on a stick with blackberry maple jam.
