Maybe it's the first time it's been called an art fair and not an artists tour or something...but at any rate hope you guys can make it.

For the Thursday event, the Beacon Shuttle will be running every ten minutes.

On Saturday and Sunday, the Shuttle will be running every half an hour (figure every 10 and 40 minutes after the hour, at the pick-up points). The Shuttle will be leaving The Beacon every hour and half hour.

The Shuttle will also pick-up visitors in front of the Exchange Place Path on Columbus (In addition to Grove Path).
