Con

No it should not be vindicated. The money used for such festivals can be used for some better purposes. Festivals are a part of our lives. But the money should be used upto the level it is needed. It should not be exceeded.

I think that this is an unreasonable idea. Festivals help bring a community together and bring in revenue to the state.

According to tax documents, the five-day Bourbonnais Friendship Festival brought in $279,086 in 2012

North American festival revenues trebled started from $1.5 billion to a peak of $4.6 billion before receding a bit during the recession. Last year, festival revenues were $4.3 billion.

You want to take that out of the u.s. economy? Plus the community strength it creates?

Reasons for voting decision: I think that this was kind of a weird debate. It is unrealistic for all of festivals to be dispersed of. But I will give grammar to con just so its fair.
