Last year??? They held the event last year in the heat of covid? That only would keep me from going this year. Any event planners who are that backward thinking/covid non-beleiving isn’t a group I want to be associated with.

I am glad that they are having such a great festival in our area that allows people to get back to normal life again. The time has come for people to get past 5he hysteria and admit that life must go on. And I love blue berries sooo much. Win-win!
