Homewood days sucked this year. You should have left Bill Frank and Steve Ploum run the show. Very dissapointed. w

I think it should be renamed "Chintzy Carnival Days"! There was very little of Homewood to experience except that it was located there. I thought the initial reason Homewood Days started was to support local businesses.........What happened? You took an annual event that many people looked forward to and changed it into an event to avoid!
