Re: “Packy's Picks: Packy Malley Provides an Overview of the 22nd Annual Midwest Reggae Fest

Looking forward to another awesome festival with my family! You can't beat reggae at the Ledges. Cleveland is lucky to have Packy put on this event every year.

Re: “Reggae Fest on the Waterfront?

It's ridiculous, but not surprising, to see people commenting on the type of people they believe- without any first hand knowledge- will attend this event. I plan on taking my 2 year-old daughter to the MWRF this year for the first time this summer. My 7 & 5 year-old daughters, who have been to the last 3 at the Ledges, always look forward to this festival. It's a great family event with tons of beautiful children their age to dance, hula hoop, swim, and play with.

Packy Malley has done a terrific job in putting together one of the premier reggae festivals in the country. It's unfair and irresponsible to generalize and label the attendees as "stoners." I am not so naive as to not understand that the general population tends to associate the sweet sounds of reggae music with the use of marijuana, but when was the last time you went to ANY concert without getting a whiff of sensi? If you talk to the owners and employees of Nelson's Ledges, they will have a difficult time naming another event that attracts more loving, accepting, and overall pleasant people. The price of admission alone (which, considering the number of bands & quality of the talent, is a bargain) helps keep the riff raff out, as the crowd tends to be there for the entertainment first and foremost.

For those of you that insist on declaring this event as being "sketchy" and filled with "the wrong caliber of people," I leave you with something to think about- the title of the first single Bob Marley recorded- "Judge Not."
