Event planners, please consider wheelchairs

I wish to thank the city of Fredericksburg for the July Fourth events, specifically the craft fair downtown. It was quite nice to be able to view the lovely items being sold.

However, I do have one comment to the booth owners. Please make sure your booths are fully handicap accessible. There were many booths that wheelchairs could not get into, which may well have resulted in lost sales.

If a wheelchair cannot go in between your displays easily without knocking things down, you lose potential customers.
