Yeah we went to it last year. It was awfully hot and they didn't attract
number of people they projected so a lot of the performers did not
the second weekend.

Overall I think the people who ran it were enthusiastic but didn't quite
manage to have it turn out the way they wanted.

I hope they do better this time.
