Summer is in full swing, and with that comes the outdoor festival season. A summertime favorite for many, an outdoor festival has something for everyone to enjoy. Whether it’s enjoying the food, shopping at the various vendor booths, or listening to the local band play, there’s no better way to spend the day. However, spending the day at an outdoor festival can be challenging for those with impaired hearing. Many times, there are large crowds, fireworks, or a slew of bands performing. Sometimes even at once.
