This year’s Ypsifest has a few key differences from last year’s edition. For one thing, there isn’t a fleet of golf carts giving rides to festival patrons. Of course, that duty was something that kept me very busy last year, just going around and around looking for riders. Not so much this year. Also pared back, the amount of information provided to attendees. No information both this year, nor printed maps of where every both is located. Part of that makes sense, the festival isn't large enough to require a full time manned information booth. But I do wish there was some resource for me to point to when asked where a specific place was.
On the plus side, the food theme this year is barbeque, and there are plenty of great smelling choices available at the park. As far as smells go, the cinnamon roasted almond stand is still by far the King. If you could get fat from smells some, the fella at the next stand over would soon have diabetes.
