Sounds like I should expect to get Free Fruits & Veggies on Friday. Or, do you mean Free admission?

Haha, Lynn. You're right. It's a "free festival," -- free demos, activities, cookbook, and, I'm only guessing here, maybe free samples. Thanks for helping me clarify!

I just get a little overwhelmed with things like "handicaped parking, hot water heaters, and blind schools". . . . In reality, the parking is for handicapped people, the heater is for cold water (you never need to heat water that is already hot), and the school isn't blind - it's for children who have disabilities. The news community has a responsibility to preserve our grammar . . . . Thanks!

Free is the modifier followed by 2 adjectives describing the noun. Yes, I know how to diagram sentences.
