For a month we have been looking foward to attending the Cherry Festival this year, just like the previous years. Sad to say this year, we are not able to attend and enjoy the activities, food, rides, and entertainment for many reasons. As we all know, the economy is not what it use to be and was hoping that organizers would take that into account, when pricing or deciding on what the entrance fees are and will be. For my family of five, it will cost us $25 just to enter the festival. We all wanted to enjoy the rides as a family but that would cost us and extra $125 on top of the $25, which adds upto $150. Then, having three teens and two adults to feed will most likely be another $50 to $75, totaling about $225 for a night. I thought The Cherry Festival is a non-profit organization made up of volunteers. It seems to me that the cost of the entry prices alone, shows that organization makes a pretty hefty profit. I was a Cherry Festival supporter, but is now not likely to happen and have shared my concerns with all my family and friends. I will not be surprise if in the near future, families stop supporting these so called non-profit organizations like these. Which means there will be no more Cherry Festivals or any other kind of festivals that pretends to be for a great cause.
