Sunfest Starts Today: Here's What To Eat!

Sunfest, the annual multi-day festival of music, art, and food with a water view, starts today along Flagler Drive in West Palm Beach.

The festival, which runs through May 6th, has some killer musical acts on this year's roster including Pitbull, Creed, Herbie Hancock, and the All-American Rejects. With all that time outdoors listening to an eclectic of roster of non-stop music, you're going to get very hungry and thirsty.

Luckily, Sunfest also offers an outstanding selection of food available for purchase. Which is good, because according to festival rules, you're not allowed to bring in any food, drinks, or coolers (though a water bottle, baby food, and food for people with disabilities is OK with organizers).  In addition to free-standing bars and soda stands that line the area, the festival has two large food courts and three awesome floating bars, courtesy of sponsor Captain Morgan.
