I went a few weeks ago, during the Beer weekend! It can be a lot of fun with the right folks, and knowing what you want to see and enjoy. the bagpipes would be awsome!

My girlfriend must not be the "right person".

Although, last time we took our sisters, so we had to make sure they had fun.

And we had them put in jail. They didn't like us after that.

I love the Festival and have gone every year for as long as I can remember and am really bummed that this year it can't happen. :( Definitely need the right people with you when you go; if you don't bring them, meet some new ones there! Have a Guinness for me. :brilliant

I used to always go when I was little and loved it. I went again 2 weeks ago with some friends and it was still a damn good time. I'm far from one of those people who gets into it, but it's still entertaining. Go see some of the comedy acts....they're really good. I always loved the Dead Bob Show, and actually ended up in a Zuchini Brothers show when I was 8 or so.

Zucchini Brothers are hilarious. And you can always enter the "Press-A-Wench" contest. If you like men in tights and / or women with lots of cleavage (and sometimes even more) showing, then you just need to go for the sights. The food is awesome, too. :thumb:

Went last week. Saw Brewmenn jousting. :tonka: Drank some Strongbow. and some Blue Moon Pumpkin Ale. And some Guiness. And some Harp's.


Go early and start drinking right away. It makes it more worthwhile if you can catch all the bigger shows.

They did a few years ago. Yeah, he is a hoot. I could stand there all day and listen to him.



I guess we are going on Sunday now, not saturday.
