And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda
Is it the beer? The relentless year-round marketing campaign by a large ethnic-identifying community? Or is it the music, a niche that holds special appeal for aging hippies and hipsters? I always marvel at how Kansas City's annual Irish festival manages to attract tens of thousands of people. I published an interview with the director of the Prairie Village Jazz Festival at Plastic Sax yesterday. I honestly don't know if the September 11 event will attract 500 or 5,000 people. I can't wait to find out.
