Entrance fee very expensive, they aren't giving you anything. The vendors pay fees to be there anything you do you pay for, so, not only do you have to pay 10 dollars to park you then pay an additional 25 dollars to enter and for what?, to pay for everything once you are in there very disappointing!!!!!

The Festival was enjoyed by tens of thousands. All concerts, monster truck shows, kite demonstration, extreme sports shows and other entertainment, more than 30 hours of entertainment each day, was included with admission. The Festival was a great value for the price.

Agree with Bill. It still remaings by far the best bang-for-the-buck time I've ever had on Long Island, or anywhere. Big name bands that you saw for free, was worth the price alone! Aesome balloon display, monster truck, motocross, street bike stunts...can go on and on, and all capped off with a great fireworks show on a huge area of "out in the country" type land surrounded by trees. Was fantastic. Wish they would bring it back!
