Parking was $25.00 per car I felt really over priced. I was okay with the rain however, utensils were wet, no samples, the poncho's that where provided were scarce. There were no tents or tables set up to eat comfortably. Paula Dean was gracious as always as well as hubby pleasant and low key which I really appreciated. What a pleasant woman. The live performances and sound system was great!!!
