I WAS IN 60MILE WIND TRYING TO SAVE MY MERCHANDICE AND WAS NOT WARNED BY FESTIVAL COMM. THAT THIS WEATHER WAS COMING. I WAS HORRIFIRD AND DID NOT REALIZE I COULD HAVE LOST MY LIFE. I WILL CONTACT MY LAWYER THEY PUT MY LIFE IN DANGER AND I LOST ALL OF MY MERCHANDICE I WORKED YEARS FOR. THEY WILL PAY BIG FOR NOT SHOWING MORE CONCERN TO THEIR VENDORS.

Wasn't Law Enforcement and EMS on the grounds? Seems like they would have that responsibility NOT the volunteer citizens of a charity organization. But if it makes you feel good to go after a group that helps cripple children, retarded citizens, and anyone with cancer that can't afford treatment, go for it. You really should be thankful that no one was injuried or killed. I am sure you can replace your cheap little vendor items without much trouble. Just what were you selling anyway?

We should all pray for you and the good folks that put on these festivals and fairs throughout our state that give you the venue to market your cheap vendor items.

May God bless you.
