I have 4 seats and 4 people in my vehicle at the current time...unless you want to ride on the roof. If anything changes I'll give you a quick shout though.

I thought I saw womewhere in the event site that they limit it to 2800 people. I am assuming that is for each session. This is my first fest and I have the advantage of not having to find a place to park. If the crowd is 2800/session how crowded is it? Is the festival on third from market to Locust and then down Locust to 2nd?

weather for Sat. 84 sunny 53% humidity. Pretty close to average.

Reason: something to add

It's in the alley behind fasaga and that small parking lot there, then about a half block of 3rd street.

sometimes it's really crowded because it's basically in the shape of a T so there's a big bottleneck right at the meeting spot.

Friend of mine at work yesterday said the second session is now sold out, so he'll be at the first too. I didn't think it was too bad last year.

Hope the weather will be like it has been the past two days!

Yeah, you enter at 2nd and Locust. Then it's all of Locust between 2nd and 3rd and 3rd street from Walnut, north to Pine.

I've never felt like it was too crowded, and I've always been to the more crowded 5pm session.

Saturday: Mix of sun and clouds. Highs in the mid 80s and lows in the mid 60s.
