Not wanted?

I spent this past weekend in your beautiful town as I have for the past 5 years. When COVID hit last year we were offered refunds for our camping stay but came anyway to support your town. Even the KOA was full and most people had the same feeling of needing to extend a lifeline to Leavenworth to help you survive. This year was totally different. With the city abandoning long running festivals. The campground was maybe half full.

This morning as I left the empty campground, I cannot think when I will be back. We have already made plans to support the 2022 fest in Wenatchee and I am not alone. I suggest doing some interviews with tourists to get a gage on how bad it is. I know I will not support a town that does not want me there.
