We're considering going to NL for the George Street Festival and staying on through the Folk Festival the following weekend. I know nothing about the logistics for these events.
1) Must you stay in a hotel in downtown St. Johns to be in walking distance, or is there a way to drive into town and park somewhere outside George Street and walk in?
2) Are tickets for these events easy to purchase or does it sell out quickly?
3) From what I've been reading, it seems as if we could stay in St. John's the entire time and take some great day trips from there, correct?
4) Is the regatta an interesting thing to go see as well?
Thanks for any input.
