Hope the fairplex gets it together before next year. Went to the first fest last year and thought it was cool. Parking still $10.00, entry $5.00 and beer was I think 5 or 6 bucks. Not too big, not really too crowded, too many beer pong tables and not enough 'snack' type food. This year had a much bigger space, still $10.00 and $5.00 but beer, oh my gosh! $8.oo for a 12 oz. beer, they claimed 16 different imports so that was not TOO TOO BAD, but bait and switch, by @ 9:30 on a Friday the only beer they had was bud-light. $8.oo for 12 0z. bud-light?!? come on! The place was bigger this year but if you walked to the next area it was some kind of salsa band playing.??? Mixed up on dates or what, maybe that's why it took 45 minutes in line to get in and another 45 to get beer. Food was roach coach (oh, food truck they're called) and limited variety, and another 45 min. + . Guess I could drive out to Huntington beach, so have I to decide next time.
