    A pizza party sounds great. If you want to let your guests mix/mingle a bit more and get a feel for the area, I love the pavillion in the park idea. You could do something a bit ‘fancier’ than pizza if you want to make it a little shnazzier, but apps can be expensive. Maybe there’s a stellar sandwich place or a pasta restaurant that has reasonably priced catering/to go options. Here is a websited with a good amount of JH restaurants with price info.

    Sandwiches or finger foods or pizza, it sounds like a blast and a great way for your guests to get to mingle a bit!

    i think the pizza party is great and your best option.  I wouldn’t feel obligated to entertain them everyday though. maybe they want alone time with whomever they are travelling with and want to choose what they do.  So i would make all non-wedding events optional, but ask for RSVP in advance so you know how many pizzas to order.
