That’s right; going on a Sunday will save you $3 per adult and $2 per child when you purchase your ticket online or at one of at one of the ticket outlet locations*.
Savings could add up pretty quickly. I figure with a little planning the average family could save the cost of one or two beer easily. Continue reading

After all the news and questions about the wildfires, burn ban, smoking ban and warnings about escaped monkeys, (yes, a monkey warning), it was almost a relief when the festival opened and we could get to taking tickets.
The weekend started out pretty good, Saturday attendance was even better than opening day last year, but Sunday was a little slower to say the least.

The rumours were true; the Royal Fireworks have been replaced with Ye Olde Laser Light Show™. Details here: http://bit.ly/nM747A
Sarcasm aside, I am glad they have come up with a show of some kind to end the festival. I remember the days before there the fireworks, and the festival just kind of faded to an end. Having a definite finale to the day has always been better in my opinion.
Trying to reserve judgment on the laser thing, but I’m going to need some convincing.
