Not A Bust, But Could Have Been Better – Kempenfest Organizers

Smaller space; threat of rain a factor

It wasn’t a disaster, but not what Kempenfest organizers were hoping for. Tom Aikens says parking was an issue and attendance was harder to gauge due to the smaller space they had to work with due to work being done at the waterfront; and attendance at the Sunday night concert was down due to the theeat of rain and lightning flashes seen in the distance. Still, he says the vendors seemed happy…

Aikens knew there would be challenges with the smaller space this year, but he’s been thinking about it and says he may have a workaround for next year with work at the waterfront expected to be an issue again.
