Street Fair... Sucked or Success?

Postby anothervote » Sun Aug 21, 2011 9:43 pm

IMHO the street fair bombed!

Certainly not as much traffic nor as many vendors as the last one.

Perhaps this was too soon after the other? or perhaps August is too hot or too important a vacation month?
or perhaps one a year is enough?

Many merchants were heard complaining about the loss of business due to street closures and competing vendors. One even suggested to pay the Chamber of Commerce NOT to hold it again!
(In an Abercrombie-like fashion)

I for one did not see a large turnout of Maywood residents.

Much less people then in April. A few possible reasons

1 the weather though the rain held off the threat may have kept quite a few away

2 way too many of the same type vendors and also quite a few less vendors then April

3 there are so many farmers markets in towns now people have many other places to go in April the markets had not started yet also this could be one of the main reasons for less vendors they were committed to other markets.

4 last few weekends in August a lot vacations

Now though slower it still brought in some much needed business to quite a few local businesses I wouldn't say it sucked
