It's a family event that highlights the local marketplace, you can walk around and find specials within the Owego small business community.
"We have a new event called soups on the street, so a lot of downtown restaurants are going to be setup out front serving discount soup to people whatever their favorite soup is," said President of Historic Owego Marketplace Bradley Crews.
The event begins at 6 p.m. Friday night.
