Not happy about no dogs

Sandy , 3/21/2018

I agree dogs should be allowed!!!

I see dates but no open/close times. Also, your "Townsend Spring Festival" link in the first sentence leads to 404 page not found. Sloppy! We apologize that the link produced an error. It is corrected now. Click on the link for the entire lineup of activities.

Bring your guitar and leave your dog at home

We heard about your event from a fella in Silva...drove about 90 minutes to discover we couldn’t enter because of our ferocious 10 lb dog which, btw, would have been in a dog carrier. Many outdoor events allow dogs. We dog owners should be dutiful to pick up all poop, and not bring dogs that have behavior issues. Please reconsider your NO dog policy. Well behaved dogs and responsible dog owners will not detract from your event.

Finally! A no pet policy. Nothing wrong with pets just that they don’t belong everywhere. Can't wait to enjoy your festival
