For the awtatawners driving from faraway distances and spending the night, here are some things to do the day before, that might grab your attention:
All day classical music
at one of the best instrumental classical music departments, if that is your thing.
cuisine and folk music. It says noon to 10 pm, but if food is your thing, you wanna get there as early as possible, as the best dishes sell out.
Green Dress Run
with the local kennel of the Hash House Harriers. Wear a woman's green dress, possibly accessorized with hats, purses and other wearables, and join the beer pub crawl with another 80 or so like-minded (must be 21 or over).
is a must-see local creation by someone that just loves vintage bicycles and stuffed a warehouse with them. Here are some images
to see what I mean.
... and while we are in the topic of visually-impressive
environments, another must-see is Randyland
. Feel depressed, a bit blue, or somewhat down? the local artist, Randy, will greet you, embrace you, pick you up, lift you up, and you will come out of Randyland re-energized, rejuvenated, and ready for ... Raccoongaine !!
