A Nod to Ithaca Festival

The Ithaca Festival, 30th edition, engulfs town this weekend, and big as it is, we think any effort to present a guide to it would fall far short of, as they say, representing.

It would sort of be like writing about a bar and telling you what to drink. You will drink - in the case of the Festival, drink in - what you like, from prodigious choices.

One thing we will note is that Galumpha, nee Second Hand Dance, will perform Sunday at Stewart Park at 7 pm. They are always great, and usually they are a premium ticket wherever they appear, so this is quite an opportunity, to see them in front of a big, hometown crowd, for free.

The other thing we will note is that there is good TCAT bus service to get you to Stewart Park, rather than trying to park a car nearby. Buses run from downtown every 10 minutes. They will stop for you if you are walking along Cayuga Street. The fare is 50 cents, and must be exact - drivers don't make change.

Have fun -
