    For those in attendance at the Chinese Fest, if you would like to share your photos with the Mayor's Office, just let me know. Until this year, I was on the planning committee for the festival, and may return next year depending on my other volunteer commitments. They are always in need of updated photos, and I am sure that they would appreciate any offer of image in return for photo credits. I hope everyone enjoyed themselves! Please feel free to share any input that you might have about the festival. It's always good to be able to go the the committee with suggestions for improvement.

    I was at Chinese Fest. I wasn't at Fiesta. :-) As usual, volunteered most of the time so not much time for photo taking. Sorry I missed you, Carol. Hope your feet have since recovered.

    Sorry guys I didn't make this. I walked over 3 blocks each way just prior for the Christ Church on the Circle photo shoot, then an extra 3 to what I thought was the Chinese Festival...except they all looked Spanish, not Chinese! After I walked all around the whole area couple times looking for Beth Buddenbaum, who had told me she'd be at one of the booths...and, then finally stopping and asking "...where are all the Chinese?"... I was told this was a Hispanic Festival! Ah, haaaa! No wonder I didn't see any Chinese!!! By that time, my feet were absolutely killing me and I still had several blocks to walk to my car. I did, and decided to go back to the apt to "rest". I'm getting OLD!

    By that time, I realized Beth probably wasn't there any longer and I saw a post from Jim Wallace suggesting that it may not be that good (???). So...Id like to know how you all felt as my feet appreciated the fact I then chose to stay put...

    I went to a Chinese Festival in Carmel a few years ago, and a Chinese New Year's event a year ago...what color and pageantry!!! The whole family gets involved. I love the Dragon Dance put on my adults, but the little kids really charm you! (I'd like to take a half dozen home with me!!!) As I've gotten more involved in the arts world, I've been told this downtown festival outshines the one in Carmel (so, it has to be pretty darn good as I was extremely impressed with the Carmel one!). Chinese food (I'm sure they'll have that too)...and I love that too!!! Yes, I'm set for a good time...good food, good music, good everything! I just hope we have good weather!!!
