My goodness, the last post was almost two months ago. I am terrible at this blogging thing. Well the Festival was wonderful, pictures posted on our website at www.lentilfest.com.
Despite being a down year for the economy sponsorship was still up. We added a third day to the Festival with a new golf tournament and expanded the beer garden. We used all new bands this year that received rave reviews and the Kid's Area renovation was very popular. Attendance was just as high as last year despite the very warm temperatures and the parade lasted well over an hour with nearly 100 entries. The Festival went green with more biodegradable containers and a new park & ride system as well as "green" merchandise and additional recycling options. All in all, a fantastic time.
Plans are already under way for next year and several new ideas have been added to the list. Send us your thoughts, we are open to anything.
