Ever since the 2006 brawl incident occured,the Festival has declined in sales and attendance because of the 8pm closing time. Because of this,vendors lost money,which causes the Festival to lose money,which then they lose sponsors and in turn they lose the Festival. We have lost the Festival this year,we must sign this petition to prevent future cancellations of this great New Bedford summer tradition. BRING THE WHALING CITY FESTIVAL BACK!
