While munching on food one can make their way to the shade to be entertained by local performers. The performers sing original songs as well as covers, setting a chill vibe to the event.After grabbing a bite to eat, there is a maze of tents to explore that showcase the many vendors and their talents. Each vendor is unique and has something that will appeal to almost everyone.
