Look for Good Accommodation Options

Eat Often and A Lot

Head on to the local cuisine shops and try famous food items with your pals or family. Stop often and keep munching while enjoying the activities surrounding you. Keep some cash handy as some vendors only accept cash.
Prepare for the Weather
Event grounds do not offer much in the name of shelter so any sudden change in weather can ruin your fun in a moment. Don’t let the weather scare you off and keep sunglasses, a hat, a warm layer and a rain protector with you all the time. Also if you are planning to drink, don’t drive to the fest.
