I was upset and disappointed - the edsel show was listed under "all day fun" but I went down around 3 PM and they were gone! that is the main reason I went! if they were only going to be there for a short time that should have been specified! - Jodie Dow

Ha- Jodie, I was about to make the same comment. I too was down in the afternoon to hear the same news. Although my son loved the puppet show and the food trucks were great, I had been hoping to see the Edsels as well.
