Good work, Stillwater. I commend the council on their decision. I don't understand the risks of investing in local organizers that want to showcase the valley and local culture. That's what the festival is all about. It's not about bringing nationally recognized geriatric performers in for evening concerts. It's also not about national retailers opening booths to promote their products as if it is a trade show. If the city expects to invest the same amount of money into the downsized local celebration and get the same results they are mistaken. They also need to expect the local promoters to grow into their role while creating a completely new festival celebrating the natural heritage and people of the St. Croix Valley. Apparently they've done this and I give them credit for their support of the people they serve.
