This will be our first year going. We're just doing Friday this year to check out the scene. I can't wait.

Any veteran tips or advice you'd like to share?

Oooh I'm jealous. I have only been once but at the time I couldn't help but thing what a kid-friendly festival it was -- the weather is nice and mild (especially if you've ever experienced Bonnaroo), camping is chill with plenty of space, and the venue, a community college, is roomy with plenty of greenspace, real bathrooms, as well as non-cruddy portable toilets. So no advice really, just a thumbs up & have a good time from me!

I'm jealous, too! We've been several times, but always before babies. The last time was when I was pregnant. So fun. I love the creekside stage.

Yep, when I was there in '06, I remember using the facilities in one of the buildings they had open, and the portable units were the much nicer ones, with actually enough room to turn around, and sinks.

Color me jealous too! I had plans to go but it's not going to work out. My in-laws have passes to meet with John Cowan.

We had the best time, and will be making this fest a yearly family tradition. Next year we'll do more than one day. It was super family friendly and put together extremely well.
