PLYMOUTH â€” The cost of putting on the four-day Blueberry Festival in Plymouth's Centennial Park carries a hefty price tag. This year's festival is expected to cost nearly $800,000.
Bringing in top entertainment, such as last year's Jake Owen and this year's headliners, Montgomery Gentry, are a portion of those expenses. But other items, such as security, portable toilets and other needs chew up even more of the budget.
The Blueberry Festival also has paid for upgrades to Park facilities, at their cost, without tax payer support.
