Great advice, SHAOLINWARRIOR!
Amanda, I am not knocking NIOSA at all, but if you have never been you need to be forewarned. In my younger, wilder, party girl days I was always to be found there, pushing through the throngs of people and getting tall, good looking men to hoist me up on their shoulders so I could see what was going on. Today that couldn't happen, LOL! but I remember those days fondly. That said, if you are not into being butt to elbow deep in a surging crowd of boisterous folks, NIOSA might not be for the claustrophobic. I couldn't do it anymore. Excessive crowding is just not appealing anymore. I gotta see where I'm going, and as SHAOLINWARRIOR pointed out, it is basically a wild drinking AND eating party.
I prefer the King William Fair and Parade these days, myself. It still draws a big crowd, but isn't as over-crowded and has a friendlier family atmosphere.
