Editorial Review of West Fest

Date: July 10-11, 2010

Cost: $5 donation

Organizer: West Town Chamber of Commerce

What to expect: Look for local bands, local food and a hip, artsy vibe.

Why to go: It's perfect for pet owners. In addition to the Pet Fest area with grooming stations and dog games, there's the "Westfester Mutt Show" for all aspiring canines and their owners. If you don't have a dog, the music's pretty darn good, too -- We Were Promised Jetpacks, Fucked Up and Derrick Carter are among this year's top acts.
