    • Jackie– we don’t need a map. Just stay out of Vineyard Haven.. It will be a mess no matter where you are.

      • Not sure why all the negativity…it is one weekend here on our beloved island, and it is a great much needed music event. As George Brennan pointed out in his reply, the show promoter pays for the extra detail. Our ticket prices also reflect monies needed for operation costs. The island is busy from May till October, this is one small weekend, and is a family friendly event.

  1. I pay taxes in V.H. Does anyone have an idea of how much my tax bill will go up because of this?
    I would rather have paid for a decent school.

    • dondon what you don’t realize is the amount that this event is pumping into the local economy to help your town’s tax base and islandwide .

      • BB — i’m not so sure about that– I see cities that get awarded the Olympics and they don’t seem to do so well. I will let you know when my taxes get cut as a result of this..

  2. dondondon12…..I see people who have said in previous posts that that they’re not going to the event complaining about the traffic at the event that hasn’t even happened yet. People sure do have a lot to complain about. Maybe they should experience some quality time in the Triangle instead.

  3. so lagoon pond road will be closed — how does one get out of the post office parking lot ?
    Or is google earth correct, and Howard road (which I never heard of in my 33 years here) which runs from 5 corners to the bridge at the marina open? perhaps Jackie is correct— a little more detail, like a map would be very helpful. If I were a tourist looking on google earth, I would wonder why Howard Ave would be open, and lagoon pond road closed. Actually as an Islander, I wonder about that.

    • Critical thinking skills might conclude: Road closed to traffic on to Lagoon Road (except local residents) and after the Post Office exit.

      • Your help– critical thinking skills may lead one to assume that, but who knows ?
        I wouldn’t trust that the organizers and various public departments have the same critical thinking skills you and i may have. i trust the local officials are doing a great job, but i know things can go wrong…

  4. Obviously Beach Rd will be open because people have to get to and from the boat. I live in OB-how is this any different from what we have to put up with, first of all, every weekend, and secondly Illumination night and the fireworks?? Get a grip.
