CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Since 1964, Festival in the Park has been bringing great music, great art and good times to the area.
First time visitors are taken by the simple, relaxed atmosphere. Old timers enjoy all the new additions of each year's offerings; Their special lighting system allows the festival to continue into the night.
This fun filled event is designed to promote and stimulate interest in the arts. It provides the opportunity for all to see, hear, and learn from over 180 artists and crafts people who actively demonstrate and display their art.
Nearly a thousand entertainers provide free ongoing performances at the main band shell and many stages surrounding it.
This morning on Larry's Look, we got a behind-the-scenes look at how the festival is put together. That includes putting up all the tents, stringing over a mile of electrical cable, and installing close to a hundred signs.
Also, Hannibal the Magician -- a long-time part of the festival -- actually used some of his "magic" to make a whole group "disappear"!
