Everything went smooth.. Police directing traffic was great we walked from our hotel. It was a large volume of people bathrooms stayed clean and adequate.

Organized and easy to get around. Large venue for musicals and events. Plenty of parking. Nearby restaurants, fast food and hotels. Shuttle from hotels to convention center makes life easier.

Be going here for years but the sound system is wacked. I won't be going to the Jazz Festival this year because I can't deal with the messed up sound system any longer.
