Submitter: Another very dated book we weeded. Dated and wrong. Is ANY festival from 1974 still being held in 2020? I looked up my own state, and while the basic information is mostly correct for the time, there are some glaring errors. Mainly, misspelling the Merrie Monarch Festival as “Merry.” This is sacrilege here. However, “mouthwatering Polynesian and Oriental foods” are still part of the state fair, and any fair, really! And the teeny, tiny type!
Holly: I mean, there are definitely some festivals and fairs with long histories. My personal favorite, the Posen Potato Festival, has been around for almost 70 years. That said, a book like this is definitely going to be outdated 47 years later. It’s an easy weeder. Man, I can’t wait until festivals and fairs are a thing again! I have my eye on Michigan Taco Fest in August.
