So much energy and enthusiasm, when it moved this year to Central Square from the Charles River. Interactive art; fabulous music, added an Indie stage; lots of food and craft vendors. Festival-goers in cosplay outfits. Very diverse. And all FREE!

It was great having it on Mass Ave. I loved the bike valet service, the salsa tent, and the number of crafts/arts booths with just a minimum of food vendors. People could, after all, go to the places on Mass Ave, so it got the support of local business people.
