Fayetteville Festivals: You gotta spend money to make money

Posted By on Wed, May 12, 2010 at 10:38 AM

Fayetteville’s Advertising and PromotionCommission  is to be commended for awarding nearly $150,000 to events and festivals coming to the New York City of the Ozarks in the second half of this year.

From Puppets in the Park to the 540 Film Festival to the Ozark Harvest Food Festival - and a whole bunch besides - these events bring folks to our fair fair city.

These folks spend money in restaurants, hotels, and various stores. We should all be grateful to anyone to comes and spends money in our town, especially in these tough economic times.

There has been some grousing on Facebook and other Internet sites from those opposed to spending tax money on anything, I suppose, but defending Fayetteville’s borders, but as usual, their thinking is shallow.

Honestly, folks, this is a classic situation where if you want to make money, you have to spend some money. What is so difficult to understand about that?
