Music lovers from around the country are heading for Bethlehem, Pa., and Musikfest '92, a nine-day multicultural music festival, which opened yesterday and continues through Aug. 23.
With more than 600 musical performances, you're bound to find some of your favorites -- everything from Bach to bluegrass. Lou Rawls, Trisha Yearwood, The Kingston Trio, Maureen McGovern, America, Neil Sedaka and The Captain & Tennille are among the headline acts. Dance bands, magicians, jugglers and other street performers set a lively pace on Main Street, and a children's area offers a backyard circus, storytelling, puppets, children's theater and craft projects. Food and beverage are available at 68 locations.
Most performances are free. Shuttle buses transport visitors to the festival from the free parking sites. Call (215) 861-0678 or (800) 360-FEST.
