Going to the Festival Village is sociable and loud (the bass beat may reset your heart’s rhythm a bit), it puts you in a totally carefree mood, and it can get you dangerously drunk.
It’s a lot of fun for kids, too. (Minus the dangerously drunk part.)
You know you overdid the Village when you wake up in the morning and on the pillow next to you are glasses with flashing LED lights still racing around the frames and you’re not sure when you got them. (I’ve heard that happens.)
There’s a variety of food, beer is $3 and everybody’s in a good mood.
But when you see people you know, you can’t just say “How have you been?” You have to lean in real close and yell at the top of your lungs “HOW HAVE YOU BEEN!”
