by Jody Spear –
MASON CITY – The Bandfest Weekend officially started Thursday, May 23, but driving around Mason City’s uptown, you can plainly see the beginning sites of where the activities will take place.
Tarps, blankets, lawn chairs and caution tape are set-up in front of homes and businesses along East State Street and N. Pennsylvania Avenue, early Friday morning where the Bandfest Parade will be displaying it’s music, people and creations on Saturday.
You can spot East Park from surrounding areas by looking for the Ferris Wheel high in the sky.  At 5:00 pm today, Friday, the carnival will start and the first of children and the children at heart will begin their summer carnival experience by riding the rides, eating the food and playing the games.
