Has anyone noticed the number of people being down at the festivals?
Seems past few years there has been a dwindling of attendees?

We haven't noticed a decrease in our trade area, more of a slight increase.

The most recent event we attended we had time to visit with attendees, from Houston, San Tone & Austin said they need the stress relief to go somewhere to weekend events.

Jim the only one we have done so far this year our sales were almost double last years. I hope the trend keeps up.

I think part of the problem is most people think that the stuff at events is overpriced so they don't go.plus if you look around how many of the same type of events are going on at the same time.(miss this one do that one).Like around here there are 3 fairs going on the same weekend!
