“I think it’s great. It brings a lot of interesting people that come from all across the country. It’s shades of Woodstock, and it’s good for the Lawrence economy.”
“It’s not a big deal to me. But I work downtown and I notice a lot more panhandling after the festival.”
“I generally look forward to that weekend. It brings a lot of interesting and colorful people to Lawrence. There’s an air of excitement.”
“I think the idea of a festival in Lawrence is great. This is a fun place to be and it gives you a real taste of Lawrence. In this state, this area is the only place like it.”
