[IN Q=There's a lot]

((RICH GUILD/EVENT ORGANIZER: THERE'S A LOT HERE, THERE'S MORE THAN JUST THE PARK. THERE'S WONDERFUL LITTLE SHOPS, ANTIQUE SHOPS AND PLACES FOR THEM TO EAT HERE. AS A MATTER OF FACT, BECAUSE OF THIS REENACTMENT, THE HOTELS ARE ALREADY FILLING UP SO THERE'S A LOT HERE AND I THINK THE RE-ENACTMENT WILL BE A LOT OF FUN FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE.))
