    THOSE SPRING SPECTACULARS... and summertime extravaganzas? The music festivals that last two days, at least, but sometimes three or four? The ones with a whole section devoted to food, or wine, or art? How they do amaze, and astound, and attract attendees who not only want to catch a favorite band, or five, but also enjoy a culinary experience, or craft brews, or all of the above.
