A music festival at Overland Park Golf Course? Bring it on
Regarding the proposed music festival at Overland Park Golf Course, I say bring it on! I am 72 years old and live on that golf course, facing the back of where the main stage is being planned.
I passionately support the festival, as do many of my neighbors. Yes, we will be disrupted for a couple of days, but it’s a small price to pay for all the potential benefits.
Let’s not sell out to fear of change by all the misinformation, bias and scare tactics being spread. Evidence-based reality still matters in these days of hyper-polarization. Let’s look carefully at the details of what’s proposed, and the plans for making it a success, before we throw such gifts to our city away.
Attend one of the free concerts at the new Levitt Pavilion on nearby Ruby Hill to get a sense of what’s possible with the right intentions. My wife and I have with our neighbors, and it’s magical. Let’s have more music, cultural celebration, dancing and joy!
