It was just an enjoyable day and evening just walking around sampling everything at the various kiosks around the park.  We were there for about 7 hours and didn’t even have time to ride any rides, which I am glad that it brings on a whole new experience at the park!

So here are some of the photos of what we sampled ( taken with my Samsung Galaxy SII phone) Sorry, I didn’t get a chance to take much video this trip.
