Attendance for the Towsontown Spring Festival last weekend was less than a third of what it was the year before. The Towson Times is reporting that only 70,000 people turned out for this year’s street fair, which was flooded by constantly and steady rain.

Last year, the largest annual outdoor event in Towson drew more than 250,000 people. Last year, the second day of the event drew 100,000 people alone. This year, it was just 10 percent of that total: only 10,000 people braved the rain.

This was a shocking total to me. I figured that while attendance would be down, such a steep drop wouldn’t occur. Towson loves this festival so much that I assumed they’d throw on a poncho, strap on the rain boots and grab a umbrella in order to go out for a pit beef sandwich or a corndog. The last week has been miserable for weather. Of course, as I look out the window now, the sun is shining just to spite this post.
