Ithaca Festival Favorites, Concisely

There is more to see than ever at the Ithaca Festival this year, with activities at Stewart Park all three days instead of just Sunday. We contrive here to construct the concisest possible list of highlights.

Thursday: the parade. For us, the best part of the whole thing. Remember, as of last year, the route is now Cayuga St., not Buffalo. If history is any guide, prepare for some rain.

Friday: Boy With A Fish on the Commons, 6 pm.

Saturday: Wingnut, with Hank Roberts, in Stewart Park, 3 pm. Evil City String Band, featuring Richie Stearns and Pat Burke, in the park at 7:30. Traonach, the celtic outfit, on the Commons at 7:45.

Sunday: the Peace Rally, an attempt to form the world's largest human peace symbol for the Guinness Book of World Records, is at 2 pm at Stewart Park. The Sim Redmond Band closes the festival at the park, 7:30 pm.

Your Ithaca Festival button, $5, helps pay for the Festival. It also gets you free fare on TCAT buses to and from the festival sites all weekend long.
