We've got martial arts performers down our way too, only these were extremely good, fluid, well organized. We've got tons of musicians at the Portsmouth festival too, but Portland is also a superb destination point for music. You'd think it would be the same group of performers, but every band we heard in Portland was new to us "southerners." We were jealous of the giant Purina Cat Chow van that came with a fancy video presentation. We've never had that ! But best was the giant Samantha fruit juice bottle -- worth the whole trip to Maine. Great festival, wonderful city. Maybe we'll move there someday if the e-Coast hype brings in too many dot-com millionaires.
