Summer is a wonderful time in Foley when you can take walks in the park and rides on a train, and enjoy wonderful downtown events.

Those events include Heritage Market Place, which takes place from 4 to 7 p.m. each Friday afternoon. Vendors offer a variety of arts and crafts, baked goods, homemade items, plants and more in a beautiful setting in the downtown park. This event also provides a festive atmosphere to kick off Music and a Movie.

Music and a Movie starts at 6 p.m. each Friday evening in Heritage Park. It’s a free event, though concessions are available for purchase. Bring a blanket or lawn chair, enjoy live music before the film begins at dusk.
