We attended our third and last French Broad River Festival recently. It's a fun venue with great music and friendly people. But we were shocked by the number of smokers this spring. We could not get away from the secondhand smoke, and they even smoked in the Porta Potties.
Smoking was linked to cancer back in the late 1950s and early ‘60s. Wake up! It's time for festivals to get with it and ban smoking in the stage areas, please. Many are already doing that.
