Why you should go:

If more than 90 hours of blues and jazz packed into three days isn't enough, there's a ton of other activities for everyone from musicians (and fans) to families, including amusement rides and plenty of vendors.

What to eat & drink:

Local choices include fried fish and pickles from Old Bag of Nails, pasta and pizza from Rotelli's and Cajun fare from J. Gumbo's. The standard fair-food vendors will also be there, and Rita's Italian Ice will be serving cool treats. Wash it all down with a beer (Coors Light, Miller Lite, Leinenkugel) or glass of wine.

Entertainment:

On Friday, acclaimed jazz trombonist Sarah Morrow will join fellow Central Ohio native Bobby Floyd and his trio. Saturday's headliner is popular blues guitarist Tab Benoit, who blends soul blues with his trademark Louisiana bayou style.

Don't miss:

Paddleboats on the Big Walnut Creek. Catch some tunes and chill out in a paddleboat on the scenic centerpiece of Gahanna.
