A festival to go to. Streets closed to traffic to make way for musicians, street performers and artists of all sorts. I think the locals are divided in their opinion of the Country Music Festival but the visitors all seem to love it. If you like the heat and country music, good and bad, then I can recommend the festival. Be warned though, it is busy.
The local park is quiet and a little oasis away form the hustle and bustle. Nice shady trees and green grass to sit on. Only the distant strains of music can be heard. Unless there is a concert on the temporary stage in the park and then it is a crazy place.
First thing in the morning and early evening are the best times for avoiding the hot sun. It hots up around 11am and doesn't stop until late. The action that is. The sun sets around 8pm. The weather has been quite humid which is not the norm for this dry part of the country. Humid but no rain.
The festival always makes for an interesting day.
