The only ones I know that charges for parking on on Long Island are Nassau Coliseum and some hospitals parking garages. Even the Ducks give free parking.
I honestly have to apologize to anyone that came to this show because of my post. It was the worst show I have ever done. Not to mention I got injured from a divider falling down onto my shoulder from the wind blowing!
I had NO Idea that they just changed the parking in the last week to $10 after advertising free! I dont think thats right.
I know of about 30 cars that turned away from the show because of that. I agree that was not right and we dont associate ourselves with shows like that. I was led to beleive this show was something different than it turned out. I mean hey it happens but it wont happen again!
There were about 20 vendors there and thats being kind. We sold NOTHING.
I felt bad for anyone that paid to get into that show. I would have demanded my money back.
So again I apologize to anyone that came to the show because of me.
The promoter came in today and made things right. He was apparently very upset by what I said on here but hey I only spoke "the hull truth". I have to say though we have done other shows with him and they have gone very well. It was really JUST this show that I was complaining about and did not want people to think that we do business that way. And I totally understand you guys about the $10.00 parking thing. But I just wanted to update you all that he did come in and make things right.
