What a joke! The festival is not what it use to be! The self-proclaimed chairman needs to be over-throned. As long as she is in charge, the festival will continue to spiral down hill out of control! Now is not too late for change!

The firemen will be selling their fish sandwiches and dinners at the fire department. Plenty of parking behind the building. Plenty of seating in the fire department. Air conditioned, heated, and dry, if needed! Come out and support the Vernon Township Volunteer Fire Department!

Maybe next year others will become as smart as the FD and not put money in the chairman's pocket!

For real? I am paying booth space rent. Is it really going in her pocket? The one with the attitude?

Festival not for kids. All they do there is fight and act like teenagers. Do they not know people hear and see them? Heard fat lady was up there calling names. If they only knew what people say about them behind their backs. Take the high road ladies because in the end no one cares and you still have to live with yourselves.

The festival is a joke. It has went down hill for the last 10 to 15 years. I use to love seeing old friends who came from out of town to visit now they wont come back due to how lame it has become. Get rid of who's running that joke of a festival and maybe it will return to it's good times.
Oh Well

Welp I had to take the kids up to the RWB festival and once again what a huge disappointment. Hell I couldnt even get a good fish sandwich from the fire dept up there this year. They stayed at the fire dept and I was told by several members its because of Sherry Bridges. This festival is really went down hill. Not much if food to choose from, i didnt walk the entire festival but didnt seen any craft booths. I hate that its gotten to thie point. It use to be a nice little festival.
Big joke

She made fun of the people who were hurt or killed at the state fair.. That's very rude... Now let's talk about the baby contest that was a joke too 2 of the judges had family entered bet you can guess who won. They let 5 year olds in when 48 months is the last age group 48 months is 4 in case some don't know math and she won that's not right. Somebody needs to go in and take charge before its completely gone.

Oh well like I said they couldnt win anywhere else so let them win in poedunkville!!!!!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! That whole festival is a Joke! Sherry had ran it into the ground!!!!!!! I had high hopes when i seen you had to contact Todd Baker for booth rental!!!! Then waiting on the princess contest to begin and boom!!! There is Sherry!!! What a let down that was!!!

Everyone of you are nothing but low life's. All you want to do is give that Bridges lady hell. This is Crothersville and people run their mouth no matter if they know the truth or not. I recieved an application for a space just to see what the prices were. Wanted to know if the locals had to pay the 200 or 300 hundred like I had heard. The local food only pay 85 and just to get a craft booth was just 40. My God people that is cheap. Go to other Festivals and you will pay triple that. I was told by a firemans wife that Bridges and the committee didn't charge them cause Howard always drove wrecker and fireman loaded tables and power washed them and they would help when needed around festival grounds. They did a lot to help the festival and in turn the committee gave then free space. Seems a lot of people aren't getting the facts. Don't matter if Bridges doing it or not you all would bitch at Mickey Mouse if he was the one in charge. And as for Todd Baker he has been fired or run out of everything in town. Hell when he was on school board they banned him from coming in school cause he was trying to tell teacher how to teach. They fired him for helping with Katie playground cause he was trying to tell everybody how to do their job and you want him to be in charge what a joke. I have to give the Bridges lady credit she sure don't let jerks like you all bother her. Hell, I just been setting back and wathcing from a distance and she is the better persn for not telling you all to go to hell. I sure would and I ain't even from this town just live here for a few years.

$85 and $40 is a great price. How much of that goes into the rwb account and how much goes into the Bridges lady's pocket? and who is this committee you speak of Kay? do they have names or are they imaginary made-up people like all of bridge's lies?

This is the worst festival ever. Sherry has taken a nice festival and totally ran it into the ground. Who is on the festival committie? Surly it's not just her and doris kovner? Are financial documents avaliable to the public to see how the money is put back into the festival? Personally I think someone else needs to take this festival over before it's totally gone.
