“The music has been great. Everyone’s been nice and fantastic. The food, I swear to god I’ve tried multiple food booths, and I can’t stop getting enough of it. Just the fact that everyone is so creative and there’s so much that you can do over here. Even if you don’t have a lot of money, you can come and relax and enjoy the environment. It’s really great I love it,” said festival-goer Muhammad Musleh.

Musleh said this was the first time going to the event and says he’s looking forward to next year.
