    What HAPPENED???

    Very Poor

    As a Barrington resident, have been going to this since it started some 25 years ago.

    This year the format was changed, and instead of being a true vibrant community event every Thursday, it has become a no-show. There used to probably be close to 1,000 people in attendance downtown Barrington, supporting local businesses. Now due to the new format, maybe 10% of that number turn out. It’s now been reduced to a few kids with hula hoops, and maybe 50 people listening to a small band.

    Nothing but complaints from event goers and merchants alike.

    Bring back the full Cruise Night Schedule for 2020. Hopefully you haven’t ruined it for good with this new format.
