I thought they had a pretty good balance this year with "Lucy" events and "Comedy" stuff -- so it would be great next year if they can build on that and bring in Lucy-related people in the vein of Wanda and Gregg. As for comedy, it would be the best of both worlds if they scheduled a new/young comedian in next year's Madigan slot and a comedy headliner with a Lucy connection who are still touring, such as Rickles, Cosby, Conway, Betty White, Vicki Lawrence, etc. I'd mention Carol Burnett but I think we have all accepted that will never happen by this point. lol

Right on, Brock! Well said. :)

 

I like the choice in dates. I have a wedding to attend on August 2, so I was holding my breath, crossing my fingers and saying a prayer that the festival would be the next weekend.

 

Now back to preping my walker and myself for the 5K. :D

Not a fan?

 

I am a fan, but Whoopi said via video at the first of the newly re-vamped Festivals that she had "penciled" in the the next year's Festival into her schedule. The next year rolled around...and nothing. Organizers them said "penciled" did not mean confirmed, or some such nonsense.
