Best Bets: Halloween, Jazz in the Park and Food Truck Fest

Food and music with a holiday in the middle? Yep.


The beginning of this week really just seems like we’re waiting for Halloween. There’s plenty of fun to be had all over the city, from Scout Island Scream Park to the milder fun of the Uptown homes that are decorated for the holiday.

Jazz in the Park returns

The annual music series is returning for the fall!
