Someone came to the site and saw my contact info for the upcoming Block Parties.
The person was very nice and asked if we were interested in having the Block Parties subsidized by having vendors from Boston and elsewhere coming down and paying to be part of it and sell their wares.
Our committee has maintained three basic beliefs and let those beliefs guide our decisions along the way- Simple Fun and Free.
We want the local retailers and restaurants to benefit. I politely declined his offer.
It’s not for some vendors from god knows where to come in, it’s for Downtown as we feel Downtown is the star of the show to begin with.
