I enjoyed the critters and the lights. The exhibit halls were a big disappointment though. I remember when I was a kid the local organizations would go all out on their booths. This year things were mostly sorta slapped together and things like the crafts were just jumbled up and not displayed well at all.
There was an amazing drum group who performed on empty plastic water cooler jugs. I wish I'd thought to get video of them. They were tossing sticks around and mugging for the audience and just having fun.
