I'd prefer the park. But downtown as it has been the last few years is OK. To me the bigger concern is time. May is a bad idea. With school about to end and families gearing up for vacation or summer sports they will have other things going on or saving up cash to enjoy their summers. Early to mid October would be my choice. Schools is in and the festival would be one of the last big town hoorahs before the holidays. Other schools bands could march in the parade. As well as other civic groups having some time to devote to the festival. The weather would be a little cooler but shouldn't be a deterrent to any. Might even get some more out that can't take the heat. And rain would be no more of an issue then as it is with the current dates. May might even see more rain or weather events than September and October.

Yes but they arrive the Sunday before the festival starts and then pack up by the Monday following so about 8 days sounds correct.

Park would be safer for our children.Too many scary people downtown .The beer garden is not family friendly.

Why doesn't anyone suggest out at the Vf outlet , they have concrete parking , and a big area , besides Vf outlet doesn't even have enough customers to fill their parking lot anyway , or will the guy that owns that place , would want too much to let Wf have a nice place for the kids to have fun at for a few days ,

I like it downtown. When the parade is over people can go right to the carnival.

I agree with some others here. October would be great. May is a terrible idea. It was at the park years ago and was nice.

Id say nobody wants it downtown in May.. I guess the OKC folks were wrong to move it. I hope it works out..
Downtown depressing
