Ken Anderson: Do we put too many resources into festivals?

To the Editor:

The current Sky-Hi News online poll ( is “What summer activity do you think contributes most to Grand County’s economy?”

There are more than 500 responses, and only 4 percent responded “Music and other festivals” behind biking, boating, fishing, sightseeing, camping, and even golf.

I wonder how much money and man hours go into promoting music and other festivals compared to the other activities?
