[Recently], the Friends of the Library put on two free concerts by David Holt, one for children and one for adults. Most children’s activities in the area cost money, so I was very excited to be able to take my grandson.
As soon as we got off the freeway on Saturday morning, I saw the ominous signs in the church parking lots and got the sinking feeling: There is a special event at the Civic Center (I still call it by its old name).
Sure enough, thanks to a regional dance competition at the Civic Center, we had to pay $5 for parking in order to attend a free concert at Pack Library. This concert was a ticketed event; it would have been very easy to grant ticket holders free or reduced fee parking.
