    Once again the worst story telling there is. Ok what Saturday and Sunday? Are we to assume that its this weekend or the following weekend? How hard is it to put the dates to events in the paper? why must people have to look at other sources to find out the full story and get the full date and times without guess. This is a huge reason this Tomato Festivals is a joke. First you have the streets all closed off to arts and crafts and then at the end of the street is a 10x10 tent you have the tomatoes for everyone to look at. Really a 10 x 10 tent and you charge to see inside? It is a wonder that the Fairfield downtown committee can put on anything. They are so far behind the other cities and their festivals. Its time for new people to take over the events in Fairfield. Find someone that knows how to put of a festival for the name of the festival. This Tomato festival should be called the Arts and Crafts with the possibility of a tomato festival. Lets get truthful about this now. and please as stated prior, Daily Republic post the dates and not just say Saturday and Sunday....?? when ever.

    It says this week, Saturday and Sunday. It was clear to me. The Tomato tent has free sampling, not a charge to "look at" tomatoes. I enjoy the tomatoes, the contests and there is always good, local entertainment.
