    Shooting a festival

    I am wondering what gear you would take and use to shoot a day and early evening cultural community festival. 3 of us have been given the opportunity to be "official photographers" for this community festival this weekend.
    I have taken images at other outside events but only as a spectator. I would like to do a good job.
    All hints and tis welcome

    Nikon of course.

    An FX body and a DX body.

    A wide angle lens -- 16-28 ( nothing slower than F/2.8 )

    A mid range -- 24-70 ( nothing slower than F/2.8 )

    A mid range telephoto lens -- 70-200 ( nothing slower than F/2.8 )

    At least one speedlight with off camera wireless capability.

    An I-phone to get the pics on to facebook so they are liked quicker.

    Nikon, Fuji, Nikkor, Sigma, Tamron, Tokina and too many other bits and pieces to list.

    How did you go with the community festival?

    After having done the shoot as a "first time" thing did you get the shots you wanted and can you share your learning experience with others on the forum?

    Do we get to see the results?
