Jeannie Wood: Chinese New Year Festival a community endeavor

The Nevada City Chinese New Year Festival and Parade hereby responds to the March 22 letter by Daniel Guerrero.

Mr. Guerrero: We apologize for your having missed the performance by Grass Valley Taiko. They did an awesome job and I heard nothing but kudos about their performance, as well as the entertainment by the other individuals and groups. While the event was our fourth annual, it had steadily grown in scope and stature through the years. We did the best we could to estimate start and ending times of performances, but there were variables that we could not control, as well as, of course, learning curves. For example, we had two parade entries that were a no-show, which caused the parade to end a bit earlier than anticipated, and hence, caused the entertainment to begin earlier than posted. The times were, at best, good-faith estimates.

Putting on such an event required a multitude of volunteers and the support of our sponsors and the City of Nevada City. While it wasn’t perfect, it was our best effort, and many people did have a great time.
