Really, it's not that much different than some of the various street fests around town, only with a better variety and quality of eats.
Okay, but many streets fest charge just $5 and provide great bands, too. I'm not talking about lame cover bands, which some fests favor to their detriment. I'm talking about quality local bands and national touring bands.
