Heads up, in case you forgot / missed it: CenterFest 2013 is kicking off tomorrow at 10 a.m.
The festival, now in its thirty ninth year, features two days of arts (performing, visual, otherwise) and sprawls across the city center. Admission is free, but a donation of five bucks is recommended. The numbers are pretty impressive: according to the press release, the festival will sport 140 “juried” artists selling their stuffs, and 72 groups will perform across six stages.
The main event will run from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, but some events will be going on outside of the main hours. Roads downtown will be closed to through traffic, and parking may be a challenge, so you might want to bike to the festival and take advantage of the bike valet parking service.
If you’re not convinced yet, head on over to the CenterFest web site, peruse the Herald-Sun’s not one but two articles about the festival, or check out an editorial in The Chronicle which commands you to go. It should be pretty sweet, you guys!
