Previously I blogged about how Street Vibrations 2010 turned into Street Frustrations 2010 HERE.
Sure, there’s a whole bunch of stuff that can go wrong with any major event the size of Street Vibrations and after months and months of hard work the folks running this event know if they just pulled off another stunning performance or if it’s all over in minutes after it starts. Unfortunately it was over before it started…
I wrote a letter to both Reno’s Mayor Bob Cashell and to Randy Burke of Road Shows Inc., who is the event producer. I want to thank them both for a quick response and am sharing the information I received:
Reno Mayor – Bob Cashell via Marcia Morse
Mayor Cashell asked me to thank you for your comments and let you know it was not the City of Reno that changed the format for Street Vibrations.
It was the promoter, Randy Burke with Roadshows. His contact information is: http://www.road-shows.com/contact.php . The City of Reno will be meeting with him soon to discuss this situation and get back to the regular format for next year.
We are sorry that this has happened to a wonderful event and promise to make next year a better year.

Thank you for your input about Street Vibrations Fall Rally 2010.
The City of Reno provided us with our downtown Reno layout in January 2010. After five revisions, we agreed to their plan. We had heard from our bikers that they wanted bikes, not vendors, on Virginia Street. We were wrong, shame on us.
We will meet with the mayor of Reno next week to discuss bringing vendors back Virginia Street for 2011.
