Opening night at Musikfest

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - August 5, 2011

"This is an awesome back drop for a show," said Lou Cina, when asked about watching the show from under the steel stacks.

"It's fun to be able to not have to go very far to do something," says Lisa Pizzuto of Easton.

"A lot of music! Its non-stop different free shows and free stages; good times," says Anthony Pizzuto.

They are just a few of the estimated one million people expected to trek to Bethlehem for the music and the food.

"We have over 500 live free performances throughout the two downtowns of Bethlehem including Cosgrove," said Jeffrey Parks.

And the food… from a German plum cake to English toffee, there's guaranteed to be something for everyone.

And don't forget the Musikfest memorabilia.

The 10-day festival of music, food and fun starts Friday night at 7:00pm and continues through Sunday, August 14th.
