I went to the festival on Saturday and although it was quaint, I didn't think it was worth the $8.00 cover charge AND the $3.00 parking fee. It's a small festival and more people would come if the price wasn't so outrageous (and therefore more revenue). Where were the blueberries? Just because you sell three or four things like blueberry pie and blueberry icecream doesn't make you a blueberry festival.....

"Not Impressed"...you are missing a very big point here. The Blueberry Festival is a fundraiser to support Historic Bethlehem Partnership. The organization that maintains all the cool historic buildings in the Industrial Quarter, which as you may recall has suffered from flood damage recently. We need to preserve these treasures and it does cost money. I enjoyed the festival and the weather was perfect!

''If you put that blueberry-peach on top of your head, your tongue would beat your brains out trying to get to it,''

Now that's an odd quote.

I have been going to the blueberry festival for several years - I understand there was damage to some buildings - but to charge to park when up until this year is was free was ridiculus....is they were going to charge $3.00 for parking then only charge $5.00 to get in. I know it stopped me and alot of my friend that went each & every year.

After reading the article, I was ready to go to the festival today, but after hearing that the cost to attend was $11 I've changed my mind.
