Looks like great weather, so should be a lot of fun.

Great coverage by Florida Times-Union, Jacksonville Magazine, WJCT, EU Jacksonville & First Coast Connect, as well.

I wouldn't be surprised if we doubled last year's attendance - swing by!

Looks awesome.
Do you believe that when the blue jay or another bird sings and the body is trembling, that is a signal that people are coming or something important is about to happen?

Had a great time... porch bands were great... the headliners in the park were awesome.  Grandpas Cough Medicine was its usual greatness... food trucks did good business as did the beer vendors... I suspect this event will get ever bigger...  8)
In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."

Went for the first time.  This event is awesome!  It was great to see so many people there and what a unique idea for a festival.  Fits in very well in Springfield.  For all those who have never been I highly recommend checking it out next year.  Kids had a great time too.

Why can't this happen twice a year?
