Thank you all for being a part of this weekend’s
“Carnival on the Chesapeake”

We could not have had such a successful event without the cooperation and support of all of you!  We are pleased to report the following:

Houghton Enterprises produced a top-rate carnival for us. They were organized, clean, considerate of city staff and customers. Many families reported having a wonderful time, with multiple compliments to the Carnival workers. Food and games were excellent and very reasonably priced. 100% of visitors to the Carnival left happy!
The final numbers are as follows (approximate based on volunteer data collection): 
Unlimited ride Wristbands sold:  600
Ticket sheets sold:  291
Individual tickets sold:  2183
Volunteers worked:  38
Funnel cakes consumed:  Too many to count.
Happy, smiling faces:  Too many to count
Negative incidents or problems:  0
Profit to the Havre de Grace Independence Day Commission:   $8000
 
Thanks to everyone who played such an integral part to the success of this weekend’s event.

We look forward to planning future events with you all. We are currently in negotiations with Houghton Enterprises to assess their availability to come back to us next summer.
