You missed the whole point. You did not mention anything about the beauty of the colors from nature, nor the quality of the artists creations, the young people in the bands showing their talents in the parade, community spirit or the like. Sure, possibly you did not like the display of some of the wares, but there was nothing to appreciate?
There seemed to be a great variety of interesting things there. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

It seems that with every good thing, the bad comes with it. Yes, it's probably played out somewhat every year. The splendor of the foliage is augmented by the commercialization that happens to the place of places. Either before or after the events, Cohocton is still quiet and scenic with its captivating sense of rural Upstate New York. There is still much to see in this quaint little town. The weather is just something one needs to contend with. The arrogance of some people thinking that it's important for the weather to be well while they are out and about.

I still love this little town and still use it in some of my novels.

why did they decide that it would be a good idea to change the dates on it this year? That upsets me seeing that i get the 11th-14th off every year for the festival.
