Despite being perhaps the least organized event in 25 years (no clue for exhibitors where their booths would be, phone calls and emails returned sporadically, no press releases before or after) the Abbot Kinney Festival was a success. There were no shootings this year.
The crowd seemed less than last year and some vendors said sales were off.
The festival benefited from pleasant weather and good vibrations. Unfortunately, it seems to be less a local event every year. But we’ll be back anyway.
