As smaller acts performed, people made their way around the park, playing mini golf, checking out local art, and taking it all in.

The biggest downside to the event ended up being parking.

Shuttles from downtown were virtually the only way for people to get to the event since there was no parking allowed at the park.

"It was a mess. But it is what it is. It's the first time they're having this festival. Maybe next year, or the next time they do it, they'll figure it out," said Raleigh resident Reese Evans.
