went to see this event 2012 and can only say it took my breath away. Beautiful is not enough to say. It was very cold and at times diffucult to stay upright but would go again and again. Every person we met was friendly, helpful and as start struck as I was.

Every year I look forward to seeing how they can surpass their great work from the year before and they never let me down. This journalist didn't do them justice with this little snippet, he could learn a thing or two from them on work ethic.
