I’m happy to have been a volunteer for this festival for all but two of its years. Partly for the fun of it, partly because of my friendship with the festival’s two long term chairmen, Mark Shaw and Rick Filippi, I have had the pleasure of dealing blackjack at and otherwise supporting this festival since its beginning. This year I’ll open the festival at the blackjack tables at 5 pm tonight. I promise at least two blackjacks per shoe. If I don’t deal ’em, I’ll buy Guinness for the table. How’s that for a deal? Guaranteed two to one payouts on every shoe or free beer from an Erie lawyer! How can you go wrong?
Make time to stop by the festival. It’s a fun family event with something for everyone. Hope to see you there!
