    Good Post Sunny. It is sad that families choose not to go to a fair, which is a exciting moment for children, because of Gang wanna be's.

    He admits that he carrys the knife because he "gets jumped a lot". Who comes forward and admits that he's a punk ass b*tch. But then again he is a wanna be gangster who obviously hasn't learned his lesson that all wanna be gang members are nothing but little punks. I'm glad he was caught at the gate and wasn't allowed in. Just think what could have happened if he got in and someone else who had beef with him had gotten in with a gun. The grape festival has been ruined by guys like this. I never used to miss a year, but I refuse to go anymore no matter how much my kids whine that they want to go.

    Look at many of the past Grape Festival articles and you will see gang related criminal activity at the festivals. Its their way of getting FREE PUBLICITY that the community should live in fear.
