Music while you shop -- Buskers at MFF:

In an effort to make Festival a bit more festive- we will have buskers performing Friday through Sunday around Building 8B.  Buskers are "street musicians" who perform in the hope of donations being placed in their case or can in appreciation of their efforts.  We hope you will enjoy the entertainment as you shop!
