Merchants & Music A Success
This is what I had in mind when I wrote posts like this about what the amphitheater could be or about the importance of programming to the success of the investment made in Tower Park.
The format, programming, and community and business engagement in the festival this year was excellent. The weather was great (at least until the sun went down). The use of the amphitheater as the centerpiece of the festival was a great touch. One great benefit was that it provided seating for all festival-goers but kept the sound of the festival manageable for having conversations either with merchants or friends.
The kid zone with inflatables and kid related vendors was awesome and the food was fantastic. Mio's had very affordable options, and there was pull pork and burritos.
Overall a very good event and the format was excellent.
