Because we live in a tourist area, every weekend has a number of festivals going on. Unfortunately, that means we stop paying attention to what is scheduled when and so are sometimes surprised to discover that our quiet plans are being shared with a few hundred or thousand others.

Hey - a ruckus. Our kind of festival.
