The cost of admission includes fun for children as well, such as a rock climbing wall, a collection of inflatable play structures and a 28-foot slide. Against a backdrop of vendors selling cigars, beef jerky and toe rings, a little local history will be on display; the Isleton Historical Society is bringing a portable museum, and a small collection of antique cars, boats and tractors will be on display. Organizers moved the festival this year to Brannan Island, where there’s a collection of marinas and other businesses known as the Delta Loop Recreation Area, making it easier for those coming by boat to reach the event, Brister said.

This quirky and fresh Broadway musical based on the low-budget Irish 2007 film has struck a chord with theatergoers and critics. “Once” transports Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová’s wistful folk-pop score into a participatory pub setting where the actors all play their own musical instruments in a freewheeling ensemble. Theatergoers can also belly up to the onstage bar before the show and join in the party. Lest that sound thoroughly subversive, rest assured that hotshot British director John Tiffany has always delighted in breaking down the boundaries of conventional theatrical tropes. Setting “Once” in a cabaret removes the fourth wall and lets the audience become part of the show.
