bimmerfest 2010 - feedback from those that have gone

Hi,

I will be in LA during bimmerfest but unfortunately looks like I won't be taking the 6 on this road trip... I have to lug 1 year old toddler and her supplies/stroller, etc are more than what a 6 vert can store...

but I plan to go to bimmerfest just the same...

I just want to know from those who've gone what usually happens and how much time to spend there...

on a different note, who else will be going?
