    Best show ever. The best thing about the golden state pinball festival is it’s not in some stuffy hotel.
    It’s at a fair grounds and has a very down home,hanging out with friends and family vibe.
    It’s very family and kid friendly and it’s a very well organized show. Don’t you dare miss an opportunity to attend. You will be glad you did.
