Two years in a row, romeofest has been a joke. It is way to spread out and if u want a funnel cake on sunday night, it will cost an additional $5.00 if u do not have a megapass. A total ripoff!

They need to get their act together. I agree that's it's WAY too spread out. It's insane. It needs to be more condensed to make it easier for old folks like me to walk from the carnival site to the beer garden. No, the golf cart drivers don't ask if you'd like a ride, either. Bad planning. BAD PARKING too!!! #FAIL

this is the worst festival in the area. There is a limited amount of things to do for the younger children half of those that were available were broken. And the parents had to pay to ride the merry go round. To make sure thier children didn't fall off! The food was limited unless you wanted to walk about a half a mile to get to it. Pricey and not fun at all!! You need to rethink this one!

I agree, way to spread out. The bands were horrible. Food was the same as usual. The carnival on the other hand was very good with tons of rides.

Taste of Joliet blows it away. 10 bucks to get in keeps out the rif raf. Ample parking and everything is in one spot. Oh ya, the Entertainment is top notch, not a bunch of cheesy cover bands.
