The event is always fun and entertaining. There is a wide variety of quality entertainment spread around the venue, including dancers, singers, jousting, combat arts, and more. The vendors are often entertaining as well, and they are generally reasonably priced.
The little things that annoy me about many events, such as long lines, high prices, too much traffic, and poor parking are not a problem here!
The only problem I have had with this event has been, I show up with a plan to see all the entertainers that I specifically want to see, and I get distracted and never see everyone on the list. This year, the weather was an issue, as it was cold and rained, but I still was glad I went.
As I said earlier, this is a favorite of ours, and I cannot recommend it enough for a fun day outside.
