Next up, the Azalea Festival

Now, since they are charging one class of individuals that raises money for charities - the runners don't get anything out of these races other than a sense of pride - they need to charge the heck out of the Azalea Festival group.

This thing has evolved into a flea market, with a bit of entertainment. There's alot more money going into the pockets of the organizers, and commercial participants than is going to any charitable organization. Of course, with this new "fee", the Festival's 5K/10K/Fun Walk participants will now have to pay their fee. Walk / run - what difference does it make.

It was recently announced that the city has an extra $1 million it has to waste on something, and they come out with this petty plan.
