Moscow Prepares For Hamptonfest

As the Lionel Hampton International Jazz Festival approaches, businesses in Moscow are preparing for the mass amount of people who will be in town. The University of Idaho ticket office is continuing to sell tickets and has almost sold out for Friday nights show. "Tickets have been on sale since the beginning of the semester and we have found that Friday is the most popular because the Manhattan Transfer is a band that is popular and people are familiar with," said Samantha Purcell, UI ticket sales representative. Local restaurants, including Applebee's and Smoky Mountain have been ordering more products to prepare/Kayla Hermann, UI Argonaut. More here. (AP illustration of Lionel Hampton)
