Shame on the Bend Downtowners. They completely misled us into paying $5 to get into NOTHING! My friends and I stood in a long line and handed over our $5 each for the privilege to walk through a filthy, sweltering hot tent ONLY to pay more if we wanted a beer or food, AND we couldn't get anywhere near to watch the wienie dog races.
Why didn't they just ask us to donate $5 to the Downtowners? We would have been quite happy to support the effort in exchange for a fun afternoon, BUT to rip us off like they did was beyond dishonest!
