Businesses that contribute have been shuttered, all we have left are bistros and art galleries. Shows how much they give back to the town. Moe needs to go.
The annual Stillwell’s Snow in the Park event — scheduled from 10a.m. to 4p.m. Dec. 6 — has been a holiday tradition in the city for the past 15 years.
But the cost of putting it on keeps rising, said Pacific Grove Chamber of Commerce President Moe Ammar, and has gone from $4,500 in 1994 to $12,000 this year.
Ammar said the chamber has $7,000 at present. Businesses in the city that normally contribute to Snow in the Park haven’t been as forthcoming this year, he said, because of the economic downturn. If the donations fall short, the event will be canceled next year.
