Most likely due to the fact that Trail Days is going to be a mess this year, and many Thrus are avoiding it, or started so late that they won't be up that far in time.
There are still quite a few people that refuse to ever return,
after they realized laws are still laws during Trail Days.
I've got a bachelor party to go to Saturday night, so I'll only be in Damascus Friday night and then hit the vendors Saturday Morning.
Mostly the parking fiasco, and the lack of room for tent city this year is going to make it interesting to say the least.
