The first day of the Kingsville Folk Festival is in the books and thousands are expected back at Lakeside Park for day two.

Organizer John Law says they sold¬†2,000¬†tickets before the show and excitement is building. “250 volunteers; it was a bit of a dream for the last two years, but today everyone seems to have just come over a hump and realized this is really happening.”

Gates open at noon with showcase events through the day. Entertainment on the main stage begins at 6pm.

The festival wraps up tomorrow.
