Actually we are paying up to two times. Once through OUR taxes and again at the door if you decide to go! Perhaps TONH residents should get in free? Shenanigans!!!

Seems to me this initiative makes our community a more interesting place. I went to an informative free panel at the Port Library. There were many corporate sponsors as well. They said the festival got off to a good start for its first year. Should it succeed, an annual event like this would be good for our businesses and our communities.
