A festival for the family

It's time for Festival in the Park. If you're relatively new to the area, maybe you've never gone to the annual festival – one of Charlotte's longest running and most popular. Perhaps all you've heard about it is that parking can be a pain.

But got a family? If so, you need to go, said Dave Dalton, chairman of the festival's board of directors. “It is definitely a family festival,” he said.
