Hello, Region IV,

Thank you again for a great festival. Our attendance numbers are up and the energy and enthusiasm that you brought to the festival made it fantastic!

I especially want to thank our hosts: the faculty, staff and students of Daytona State College! Their generosity of time and knowledge were what made this festival a big success!

Below is the festival wrap up. Congratulations to all who participated and learned more about their art!
