What a great idea in theory. Too bad the hype was bigger than the event itself. Traffic and parking was completely unmanaged. Once we reached the main stage of the party, lines were unbelievably long to get a beer, mudbugs, or anything else for that matter. I could almost count all of the vendors on one hand. What were they thinking? It was almost like the vendors forgot to show up and the ones that did didn't anticipate the masses. We were very excited about this event, it was a shame for it to be a huge disappointment! Hopefully they'll learn from their mistakes and make it better if they have it again.
