Waiting for the second annual Bootfest
Editor, the Advocate:
I would like to congratulate the organizers of the Bootfest for their successful event, however, it cannot be called the "first annual" bootfest. Example, the first annual macaroni fest never happened again. People who bought tickets were told to hang on to your tickets and you could use them next year, but that never happened; people who bought beer tickets couldn't reimburse them; when the storm blew in, the beer trucks packed up and left, and the event closed.
Everyone there was promised that if they hung on to their tickets, they would be honored next year, but there never was a second annual macaroni fest. Secondly, I would like to congratulate all the western wear stores for all the money they made off of the Bootfest, even one local owner on the local news said "I wish they would have one of these every week." Duh, no lie.
Third, the organizers of the Bootfest did a wonderful job keeping out the undesirable elements, they had no rock 'n' roll, blues, jazz, classical, not even a little hip hop band on Saturday at 1 p.m.
That would have been gone by the evening anyway, and that element would have been out of their way. So, please, before you start calling it an annual event, please make sure you will have it at least twice. Enclosing I'd like to say YEEHAW. Redneckville might have an annual event.
P.S. just can't get rid of that darn macaroni taste.
