Wonderful show. Love the various bands and the finale is spectacular. There is a great variety of entertainment and well worth the money. I could do without the gunrun - it is noisy and detracts from the wonderful musical presentations.

The music at the Tattoo often brings tears to my eyes. Great show, to be seen if you're in town first week of July every year.
