Letter to the editor: Greensburg ‘Soiree’ disappointing
My wife and I attended the June 28 Summer Soiree in the City event on Pennsylvania Avenue in Greensburg. We purchased two $15 wristbands and received our raffle tickets. We visited a lot of the stores, but most had no idea of what the tickets were for, nor were they accepting them. An advertisement for this event promised six food trucks and there were only four. There were supposed to be six wineries and there were only two.
I ordered and paid for two sandwiches from a truck and was told to come back in 15-20 minutes to get them. When we finally got our food we went to sit in the little park near Second Avenue. It was filthy and the seats were covered in seeds and bird droppings.
The idea was a good one to bring people into town, but the result was far from good. If you advertise something to get people to visit, then you better deliver, or don’t expect them to return for another event. I know we won’t. It was very disappointing.
