Letter: Turkey Legs

Every year I look forward to the Rossini Festival. I was very disappointed last year that I could not attend due to rain. I closed my business early Saturday so I could enjoy the beautiful day and festival. I was very saddened to see so many "fair food" vendors and almost no local restaurants. I thought this was about local businesses and crafts people. I usually find so many things to buy I run out of cash. Not this year. Most of the artists I have bought from in the past were nowhere to be seen. I hope next year I will see more art and less turkey legs.
