|Get the crowd into it|
The problem with infusing crafts with this event is that I'm not sure if it's a food festival with crafts or vice-versa. It's a bit confusing and watered down. Truthfully, if you squint your eyes tomorrow it won't look or feel much different that the Super Sunday we had a few weeks ago. That had both food and crafts, which I think doesn't do well when so close on the calendar, so this should be something unique. Maybe in the future do it on Saturday in conjunction with the Jazz Fest?

Media needs to think this through to revitalize and spice up what was a BIG event and still could be. If they could also include wine/beer tasting, cooking demos, produce markets, they could have a hit on their hands like West Chester has become known for. Perhaps a beer garden with live music like the Broozers? Who by the way will be playing at Joclyn's tomorrow afternoon.
Media's Iron Hill brewery has a brewfest each May that draws hundreds for food, beer and entertainment. The tickets sell out fast and there haven't been any available at the door for purchase in years. Even if Media did wine from some of the local wineries, I'd have to think that would be huge hit right off the bat. I think it could draw in a broader sponsorship too. Something new, different and a change from Super Sock Sunday with Food.
Folks, Media has tremendous potential everywhere you look and if elected Mayor, I will bring the enthusiasm, dedication and vision that I know will enable us to be one of the best places to live in America!
