The 40th Annual Cypress Community Festival recently wrapped up its two-day event at Oak Knoll Park, with organizers looking forward to 2022.
There was plenty of fun, food and festivities at this year’s festival, according to Cypress Festival board members, and the Committee is already looking for ideas to improve the event.
The Festival Board is seeking input from the community at large, through a survey that’s posted online for people to complete.
The survey basically asks, “What would you like to see next time in 2022?” And, “What did you like and what would you like to see changed?”
Items for consideration include fencing-off the kids, teens and youth area like the rest of the festival is and if those areas are fenced off, then that would allow for alcohol to be in that area, as well and drinking would be allowed there.
The headliner on the Main Stage was a concert by the “Knyght Ryder;” questions are asked if $10 was the right amount to charge for that concert and if people liked the concert enough for Knyght Rider to be brought back in 2022.”
People can suggest their choice of music from Hip Hop, Classic Rock, Latin, 80s/90s, Rock & Roll, Country, Rap, Rhythm & Blues or something else.
There’s an opportunity to have a say on a Car Show, Food Vendors, kids, teen and youth entertainment – “What was your favorite area?” Or, what would you like to see changed for 2022?
“Was there enough advertising, and if a free off-site shuttle was available, would you use the shuttle to get to the Festival?”
The Festival Committee is looking for helpful suggestions and/or comments and welcomes people to join the board or interested people can help on a specific Festival Committee that is of interest to them.
As in years past, there was a Beer Garden; along with a new kids area, crafts and business booths and music on the Main Stage.
Also, there was an opportunity to support Cypress Schools by pre-purchasing select items online.
