Npr seems to be a real stick in the mud when it comes to culture,this place used to be really touristy in the 80's and early 90's with towel and t-shirt shops everywhere and miniture golf and gocart's everywhere.
Then it was like the area went through menapause and shrivled up.
Why have a pesudo cultural town?
It seems like their for the arts, looking at the down town area there are murals and all that jazz, if npr looses chasco they might as well paint over every mural in town and bury sims park, outlaw fun all together and bust anyone who smiles.

The promoters have been gouging the vendors and the vendors in turn have to raise prices to compensate and the public simply can't afford the higher prices in this economy. As a result less vendors are willing to participate. This event's time may have come. Took the family last year and the surprising thing wasn't that the crowd was sparser than previous years but not many people were purchasing food from the vendors, mainly drinks to stay cool.

It has become overrun by shirtless drunkin bums who will literally stomp on the little kids for a stupid bead necklace. I had beer spilled on me,some dumbass girl had her baby laying on the dirt ground in front of Jillys (this with the jumping drunks 2 feet behind). A girl puking in the corner with no shoes on. I had to leave, it was too gross.
That cute gift shop, gone. Michelle's chocs, gone. Sergios (nice), gone. Cafe Grand, gone. Sullivans, gone.
And a lot of the people there have a few/no teeth yet spending all their money on beer
