City of Carrboro dropped the ball

After an amazing first festival, the city of Carrboro has decided NOT to allow another festival next year. Where did the funds go? Another national/international festival?

Patrick Heron received this reply:


I wanted to answer your recent question to Sean Sunkel, Special Events Supervisor about having another Poetry Festival sometime in May 2005.  Unfortunately funds were not approved in this year’s budget to accommodate a Poetry Festival.
