This is a great all-ages event. It was fun last year but wear a broad-brimmed hat, sunglasses and lots of sun screen. This is an outdoor event in a park with lots of trees but they have the main performance stage set up so that in the afternoon you will be looking straight into the sun. It's really difficult to take pictures of the performers unless you get right up in the shadow of the stage. Straw bale seating for those who get there first but there is a lot of rotation as people come and go. Lots of vendors in stalls around the perimeter of the event, with lots of accordions--a great way to make side-by-side comparisons if you're shopping for an accordion. Typical festival fare: hotdogs, suvlaki, corn dogs, etc.
