Cost for food festival is too high

Unbelievable! I just called Natchez Pilgrimage Tours to find out the price of admission to the Natchez Food Festival for the Friday night activities.

I was told $65 at the door. I responded that had to be per couple and was told, “no, that’s per person.”

Whoever made this absolutely ridiculous decision has just killed the goose who laid the golden egg. I have already spoken to six other local couples who have no intention of attending and that doesn’t include my wife and I, and our guests.

I think our money will be spent more wisely going to dinner at one of our fine restaurants where for the same price, we can have drinks, appetizers, entree and dessert.

All I can say is, “good luck,” I think you’ll need it.
