Who approved some of the booths there? This was to be a family event. Yet-
One booth was selling sex toys, another had cross-dressers promoting AIDS awareness.
Really???
Shame on the Fluvanna powers to be.

Small business is fine. However, the lack of
an industrial park that will bring in manufacturing companies that will lead to better paying jobs and contribute to our tax base is a major issue.

Until that happens you can count on higher real estate taxes and continued hand wringing at budget time.

Of, and for those who think that small rural counties are incompatible with industrial parks I urge you to take a ride to Augusta County.

That's the problem. There are no powers to be in FC. Just the ones who think that this festival is a major boom to economic prosperity in Fluvanna.

We have owned property in Fluvanna since 1970. The only thing that has changed is the higher rate of property taxes that Lake Monticello has brought about for the rest of the county. The whole freaking Town of Cumberland is a wasteland and has been for a long time. There have been missed opportunities over the past 4 decades and it shows. Fluvanna should be enjoying some of the same economic growth that Louisa has in the area of Zions Crossroads by now. Yet Fluvanna is floundering like an obese mermaid at low tide. I doubt I will ever see any positive changes in my lifetime.

Glad for the gentleman who has grown his sign business after last year, but where are these signs going to be used in Fluvanna County, based on the sign ordinance? Businesses cannot display signs unless they meet the stringent sign ordinance rules. Check them out so you know why you can't find the businesses you want to deal with.

The words "alcohol" and "family event" do not mix. Alcohol being served should be the reason that families should not attend this event. It sets a poor example for children seeing alcohol being served, the way people act when drinking, along with what you saw at the event--just amazing!! We are not surprised at what you have told us: typical Fluvanna County! A useless event that will not promote positive economic growth i.e. a much needed grocery store, dollar store, dry cleaners, etc... on the Fluvanna side of Zion Crossroads/Route 250! Based on this event it is more of the same rif-raf and blight that is aleady here.

By "rif-faf and blight," I take it that you were able to attend....
