    I just don’t think $2 for entry is justified. Most people want to visit one food cart, get some food and leave. The food is already expensive so the additional $2 is just a money grab for the organisers.

      I agree. The event is outside, at a venue where millions of people will pass thru throughout the summer months (free to go there I might add) & will consume plenty of $s worth of delish foods and will pay generously for them, so charging an additional cost to just pay more for food once you get past the entrance…I can go to a cafe, sit outside & enjoy what I chose without having to pay extra just to get at the fare!

    $2.00? That’s all? For music and activities? I can’t believe how cheep some people are in this city. A lot of time, money and effort go in to planning these events so people have something fun to do on a Sunday afternoon. After all the visitors have left and gone home the area of festivities is a disaster zone, garbage left everywhere, likely by the disrespecting people who complain about the measly $2.00 to cover the cost of the permits and efforts to maintain such an event. It’s $2.00 people! Quit yer bitching!
