And I was their yesterday Saturday May 22, 2010. It was my first time visiting the festival and I was quite pleased with the outcomes. First of all it was hot and humid (Florida typical weather) walked around the Loch Haven Park where they had an area specially for vendors, food, merchandize and a small stage. Weekends is Kids Fringe so I brought with me my daughter and my mom. We enjoy listening to a Band that sing happy looneytones in a different way Funny too!. Then we walk to the Shakepeare Center to check out the Visual Arts. It was amazing to see such of variety of mediums and talents. It was crowded and we did alots of walking so make sure to bring your comfy walking shoes!
