  1. Poor security ..only 2 police with wands for several thousand people. 1 entrance to the open space in front of the stage. We stood next to a baracade where the people next to us went through wanding. But not the 700 people next to them. Inside the market the exits were blocked and a real fire hazard. Not too swift

  2. Also caused HUGE backups on surrounding streets, even onto rte 93. Signs warning drivers of possible congestion and suggesting they take alternate routes would have been nice!
