    I would go if they were all in one location, such as the old courthouse, but because the city is spreading them out among businesses, it’s clearly just a tactic to get people to bring revenue to downtown Logan. Lord knows that’s all they care about anymore!

      They’re mostly within about a one or two block radius, which is not hard to walk around to. It is the Downtown Alliance sponsoring it, not the city. A big chunk of the DA’s stated vision is attracting people to downtown businesses. There shouldn’t be a surprise. We are a capitalist society, after all. That doesn’t mean they aren’t fun to look at, and you can just stand on the street and stare into the windows. Or you can stay home and watch the new episodes of Masters of the Universe that just came out. Oh wait, that show was created by Mattel to sell toys, so you’ll have to watch something else.

    Yay! I’m so excited to see all of them. I might even spend a $ or two. I heard AKH is only haunting the courthouse this year, the city is safe.

        Can you teach me how to haunt?

    Ever since I learned about the ginger shortage in other countries I find it hard to celebrate using the root to make high sugar confectioneries here in the states.
