I live in Philly and do not plan on attending.  I would love to but I do not have the money.

Yeah, I hear you on that.  I lived in Philly for most of my life and I've only ever been to it once.

Wow!  Adult tickets are $28.00 in advance or $32.00 at the door!

Wow beyond expensive. If I was close I wouldn't go, price alone would stop me. That isn't worth it, but I am not a fan of flower shows.

My son used to be in a bagpipe & drum band. The band would go to Legionier every year for a huge Scottish festival. The bands got no discount for going & being a part of the mass bands & they kept raising the price. It only got to $18 and we all started to want to protest by not going. I can't believe $28. Crazy, and $32 at the door. Wow.

 I might not sure if I am up to that big of a crowd yet.  The last few weeks have been tough on me.

If I were to go, I'd go to the Pittsburgh one, closer to me.  My MIL is there now. (Pittsburgh that is)  lol

I am bad about what could I do with that money. I mean I do scrapbook, but still that is getting something out of it. A finished product. Not just giving someone $28 & getting nothing but looking at things. I just don't get how places feel they have the right to charge this much, and I guess they get it is how. People need to stand up & say no! Or better yet, someone else needs to come in & say, we will do one for less!

At least the games we all enjoyed but still were angry, plus drive time. 1.5 hours to get there.
