    this was my first time at this festival. I was a vendor at the Native American Festival. in my opinion it was well run and was a delight to be apart of it. the crowning glory of the whole festival in my opinion was that the Aztec Dancers were there and in their own way helped to portray what we say when we tell people we teach by example. by this I mean that they had their young children in the dance arena doing the dances with them and even had a small baby doing the dances in it’s fathers arms. this was awesome. I hope to be able to return next year and hope the Aztec Dancers will be there as well.

    I have been attending the Kipona Festival for a number of years. Two years ago, a friend and I went there as before, only to find a FEW craft vendors (not like years before). Are there not going to be many craft vendors there this year or in the future? Thank you.

    Really wanted to see the fireworks tonight but apparently the times posted were wrong. Here and even on a local news report the fireworks were supposed to start at 930. Left my house at 900 which would’ve been plenty of time to get a spot too watch then from and I could already hear the faint pop of them in the distance. Thought I could still make it in time to see a good portion of them but just as I got close they ended. Kind of disappointed here. Might want to make sure the times are correct next time.

      Sorry Dominick – I checked the official website today and it still lists the fireworks at 9:30pm. We did our best listing information from official sources.
