International Jazz Fest — First night blues

Aug 09, 2013 No Comments by

The Jazz Fest has started.

Bansko is already very busy. The atmosphere friendly and relaxed.

The warm summer evening adding to the attraction of this Jazz Fest 2013. One I’ll remember.

It’s all for free too. But mind you watch out for the paid parking charges. I saw the spider tow truck on its way to a job.

Assuming you arrive at the main square early, you can grab a free seat. Otherwise it’s standing room only.

But hey, this is all free… paid for by the municipality and the sponsors the International Jazz Fest in Bansko. All in all, they have managed to serve up one of the best first nights for a long while.

It’s appreciated by residents and visitors alike. It’s good for Bansko in the quieter summer months. Reflecting on all the people here for the Jazz Festival, I think here is a place that has loads more to offer than many realise.

It’s certainly not perfect though. Still poor pavements to trip on. Still some unsightly unfinished buildings that grate on the eyes.

I digress… time to hike, mtb, go sightseeing, visit bear park etc — then watch the show at the main square. A good time to be here.
