That said, kind of an unfair complaint since the music lineup for this fest hasn't been released, so who knows what $10 will get you? And again, the food is the draw here, as most street fests around town have the same basic vendors providing the same kind of street food. I'm fine with having to fork over an extra $5 for much better eats.
West Fest and Rib Fest. Others are $8-10. My point is they give you something of worth for your admission. Charging $10 just so you can buy spend more money is lame. The Rosemont sports memorabilia shows have done that for years. I hate that.
