What a great "party" this is! The setup for the wine taste, with the fenced in drinking area, is going a little to far though!! Was there a problem with "teenagers", running amok, or something? Come on, this is a festival that has gone 30 years without any problems with wine distribution,why the draconian set ups now!! It seemed more "prison like", then protective, whats with that?? The crossing guard at State Street, was nice, but, should not have commented to a visitor that"I should write you up for J walking, but I'll let it slide, "this time"! Come on!!!!!Has authority over citizens,gone to every body's heads! Despite all this, the weather cooperated splendidly, and a grand time was had by all!!
