Your Views: Hooray for the Festival of Speed & Style

To the editor:

Well done to all the organizers, sponsors, volunteers and participants who made the first ever Old Town Festival of Speed & Style such a tremendous success. So few of us understand just how much hard work, planning and money goes into making such an event go off so well. Congratulations.

After so many attempts, over so many years of trying to bring such an event to King Street, the organizers of the Festival of Speed & Style did it, and did it right. I hope the City of Alexandria now sees how popular such a show is, and how many people it attracts. The number of people milling up and down King Street was spectacular.

All the hard work paid off with a very well-run event. The fabulous cars were amazing, the music was great and the fashion show was a real crowd favorite. As a spectator, I was truly impressed by the show, the people and the great reaction of the crowd.

Along with my fellow car enthusiasts, I hope the Festival of Speed & Style will be back next year, and for many years to come.

Thank you Festival of Speed & Style.
