“This year we are trying to get a broader perspective that can be shared in public, because 45 years into summer festival, although some of the various components like boat racing have been around for over 75 years and it is important that we capture the history and traditions that we are trying to preserve behind the summer festivals,” Romney added.

The summer festival theme going forward from this year will be “Beach, Boats and Bachannal.”
