Although the festival hasn’t been free for the past couple of years its commercialisation has hopefully been a good thing. Many would argue this, saying a gay festival should be free for everyone to enjoy, but at the end of the day a festival has to be paid for some how. If donations and fundraisers don’t meet the budget year after year, you have to draw the line somewhere. The turn out was fantastic and atmosphere much better than last year. Unfortunately the rain couldn’t stay away which put the dampeners on things a bit, but rain doesn’t stop you having fun on a day like this.
