Went to the first day of Street Fest, Every other bench is used in the Boatworks Theater (new home of the Saloon Show) and in the Dockside Theater. Lots of acts and show times throughout the park. Many of the acts have been at previous WorldFests, Festivals of Wonder, etc. The saloon show has 2 band members, 4 dancers, and 3 singers/actors. There is no notice posted at the Saloon that the show has been relocated to the Boatworks. Riverside Playhouse is open as a cool, maskfree place to sit and rest.

Wait times on Thursday were short for the rides we rode (drop tower, Fire in the Hole, train, Flooded Mine). When we rode the train in the afternoon we didn't see Wildfire, Outlaw Run, or Powderkeg running. Train ride is down to 1 robber.

We got Chesters Chips about 12:30. Apparently they had been cooked way ahead of time because they were cold. We didn't try any other food. We did see quite a few folks wearing Tasting Passport lanyards.

We made our first trip of the year Sunday. Arrived at the city around 1:30 or so. Wasn't overly crowed and walked on TnT, TimeTraveler, FM and GE rides. about a 5 min wait for FiTH. Purchased the Tasting passport and was overall happy with it. Daughter insisted on Teriyaki Chicken Skewer, and I agree with Swoosh was the worst option we had all day. I knew we were in trouble when the cook was prying them off the grill. Tough and basically flavorless, and 1 skewer for a tasting, much better options and portions are available. Rounded out the Card with Orange Chicken Waffle Cone ( About half the cone full), Funnel Cake Chartcutrie board ( 3 3" funnel cakes and 2 toppings) and Carnitas Fried Ravioli Nachos ( 6 pieces) x2 since we ran out of time and the park was closing. All more than enough to share. Didn't see a lot of the entertainment since I was with my 13 year old who was really mainly interested in how much food and how many rides we could do. Overall a nice day at the park, even with the cold wind that picked up as the day went on.

So, how did they pronounce "poutine"?

You answer first, then I'll tell you how the Quebecois up here pronounce it. ;)

Well I ordered it and pronounced it “Poo-teen” which is how they say it in Toronto.  My friends up there could care less how the stinky frenchies call it.  lol

LOL

Most of Quebec, and all of the "Mill French" towns in New England, pronounce it "PUT-sin".

I know, it doesn't make sense. Neither do any other French pronunciations, whether Parisian or Canadian.

Shouldn't you basically drop the last letter/sound in just about every word when speaking French?

We saw it the first day of Street Fest. 4 saloon girl dancers, Sadie, Charlie, and the "theater owner", piano player and drummer. Not much of a plot -- Sadie rents theater for a show, show bothers theater owner who makes noise at times to interrupt the show.

The show just left me whelmed.  It was nice to see some old faces back though

No surprise here, every time I'm at the 60th sign or the front gate taking pictures of guests they always ask about the taste passport for street fest.

I just noticed that the headliner acts during the Bluegrass and BBQ festival will be performing INSIDE the Opera House.  That is great news (if the online schedule really is accurate).  I am sure we will be “socially distanced” but that is one more big step back toward normalcy.  Yahoo!
