|The arts & crafts vendors|
This year, they opened up the festival to the South Side, as well, utilizing the area at the Steel Stacks; it used to be the old steel mills when steel was THE industry in Bethlehem.
In fact, we saw the Steve Miller Band play at Steel Stacks on Monday night... it was a great show! The view was good, it wasn't brutally hot, although it was humid and everyone was still sweating... you could get relief when a breeze passed over you, though.

This is one of the biggest music festivals that happen in this neck of the woods. People come in from other states, stay in hotels and B and B's, and just hang for a week. Traffic and parking become an issue, and roving groups of teens are easily seen in the neighborhood, but all in all, it's a really cool thing! The coolest vendors there were Sassy Sisters Jewelry, who also has a shop on Etsy, and the tent where you can make your own patterned scarf, using the marbling technique. This was really fun to watch!
