Emotions ran high when the entertainment community heard that Skinner Park was going to be renovated. While happy that improvements were coming, the thought of not having the space for Carnival was tough. Nostalgia reigned as old memories and unforgettable performances were bandied about; in the end though, one unchangeable conclusion came to the forefront.
