First… I wanted everyone to know that I am in support of Pioneer Days and the work that the chamber has done on it. This is not an indictment but a honest observation. Something we need to work on as a community:
The Parade I understand went as well as expected. I was busy setting up at the park so this is hearsay.
I gotta say this with the most delicacy This week’s kick off of the 29 Palms Pioneer Days was … Hmmm…. errr… well, lets say disappointing.
Several food vendors, business booths and non-profits who paid good money to be there were promised large crowds. They were a little disappointed with the lackluster turnout.
Saturday’s events went off pretty well, though the crowds did not materialize.
Sunday’s Pet Parade was…ah, well it was a Pet Parade Yes indeed. the rest of the day was cancelled.
We hope that next week with the carnival, will bring bigger crowds and a chance to recoup our losses.
