After much anticipation, the inaugural First City Festival kicked off this past weekend in Monterey. For being spankin’-new on the scene, it certainly packed quite the punch with acts that rivaled some of the Bay’s biggest musical shindigs, tasty food galore, and it even upped the ante with a slew of carnival rides and games, plus a snake-wielding magician!
