Although Mother Nature didn’t cooperate with Navasota’s first-ever Reds, Wheats and Blues event last month, the Chamber of Commerce’s Johnny McNally says its success depends on how you look at it.
From a logistics standpoint, he reports is was really great, with four terrific bands playing blues music throughout downtown, seven wineries, four micro-breweries and all the merchants were decked out for the holidays and for this event.
And even though there was a significant amount of rain, especially towards the evening, McNally tells Navasota News that whose who braved the weather were greatly rewarded for their efforts.
He says everyone who showed up had a wonderful time and “partied like it was 1999,” while admitting that we could have accommodated a whole lot more prople.
And McNally adds that even though the numbers could have been a lot better, all of the downtown merchants still thought it was a great event and are eager to do it again next year.
Which’ll be easy, McNally says because they put this event together with the long-range in mind, ordering supplies that could be used next year as well.
One chance they will probably make next year, McNally predicts, is to move it earlier in the year, possibly to Mid-November, so it won’t so easily get lost in all of the Christmas Fa-La-La.
