A few of the events the Clog attempted to attend were the Capoeira demonstration (sadly, we missed it), a cooking exhibition by Kitchen on Fire chef/instructor Mike C (what does the C stand for, we wonder?), and a crowd so large and in tune with their Indian dancing that we had to spill into the street just to get across.

For more information on the annual festival, you can read its website.
