Much of the entertainment will take place in a huge heated tent erected over the 200 block of Park Avenue. The festival tent opened at 4 p.m. today and will remain open until 1 a.m. The tent will be open from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. Saturday and Sunday. Schedules and band lineups can be found at www.barringtonpub.com.
Admission to the tent is free during daytime hours. An event donation of $10 per person is requested for access to the tent Saturday evening, with a portion of the proceeds supporting the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life.
