Smokey Robinson brought the fans to Festival of the Lakes today despite high temperatures. Nonetheless, crowds were sparse in other areas of the festival. Whether security concerns or the high cost of parking kept families away, one Festival worker reported that she never saw a line at a single ride. Parking was still available in the main lots at 8:00 pm as the concert began. Many families were walking to avoid the $15 parking fee. Several neighborhood businesses offered $10 parking.
If you attended the Festival of the Lakes last night, we would love to hear your comments.
