Fantasy Fest Arrives

Well, it's here at last. Fantasy Fest kicks off today and runs through the Saturday night parade. It's a shortened event, cut from 10 days to 5, and likely to be more subdued and not as well attended. Fantasy Fest normally brings between 50,000 and 70,000 visitors to town. I haven't heard any definitive predictions for this year, but there is a notable absence of street traffic today so far, and word is that there are still rooms available in many of the hotels and guest houses.

It will help the economy some, but it won't eliminate the financial woes that many businesses and individuals are suffering, not to the extent that a full FF in October would have done.
