Friday market might head outside
Gary Trafford of Gary’s Bonsai is a regular vendor at the Landing’s farmers and arts market. The once-a-week event moved into the building for the first time last year when the weather turned cold. Trafford said Friday the warmer weather might be a cue for vendors to move back outside and set up their wares along Independent Drive. Trafford said being indoors means shoppers take longer to look at his orchids and plants, but he might set up outside this week. “As long as it’s not windy,” he said.


Gumbo Festival Saturday at the Landing
The courtyard at the Landing will be filled Saturday with more than a dozen teams competing in the PhiNS Gumbo Festival.
Downtown’s first official festival party of 2012, the 7th annual Parrot Heads in Natural Settings Gumbo Festival, is Saturday at the Landing.

Some of Jacksonville’s most dedicated Jimmy Buffett fans and a few professional chefs will begin stirring gumbo at 10 a.m.

With a $10 donation, tasting any or all of the entries begins at 1:30 p.m. followed by voting for the “People’s Choice” award.

Prizes also will be awarded for showmanship and a panel of celebrity judges will select this year’s best entries in the amateur and restaurant categories.

All proceeds from the event will be donated to Gleaner’s Dispatch Inc., a local nonprofit food bank that collects and distributes perishable food items to people in need.

The George Aspinall Band will be on stage from noon-4 p.m. in the courtyard, followed by Jimmy Parrish and the Ocean Waves from 7-11 p.m.
