The falling leaves
I heard that Snow Days won't be back this year but that Fete de la Musique, is coming back. I'm not quite sure why we can't have it all. Snow Days is a popular fun thing. I am told that there's only so much money to spread around by the BID these days and I feel they made a bad choice in choosing one event over the other.
Let's bring families to the Grove at Christmas time. I understand Fete is culture and it may be great to have all sorts of musicians all over town performing, but if it's the difference between Snow Days or the Fete de la Musique, I would choose Snow Days. Add more snow, make it a bit larger, but keep the popular tradition!
Remember that Cirque du Grove which we had on July 4th weekend for a couple of years? There was a night time fire show and a daytime acrobatic show, right out on the streets, all for free. Well we didn't have that this year because the money went to the Fete de la Musique, which again, was fine but the Cirque brought more people and was different, exotic and something we could claim as our own.
I don't get it. But where the BID is concerned I never get it.
