Wonderfull event ! But please MEye dont allow your writters to inflate attendence by claiming "hundreds attended". Your reporter might has well said "thousands attended". I thought the Eye was a fact reporting News Blogg, the above statement leaves questions of truthfull reporting and apears to show favoritisim and selective reporting for certain groups.......just saying.

I would have liked to attend but could not afford the $35 ticket!

We are sorry that you missed the party. We hope that you join us next year. The $35 is a suggested donation not a ticket price (the party is also free for North End residents).So next year come on down donation or not, we will be excited to have you.

The Middletown Press also reported "hundreds" in a story that was published several days prior to this Eye post.
