We went to the Burnside Plantation for the Blueberry Festival and I was very disappointed. For a family of three, we paid $20 (and I believe we could have just entered a different way and paid nothing). Once we got in, the majority of tents were people trying to sell things. Nearly everything at the festival that was interesting in any way required an additional fee. Few of the vendors had blueberry anything. By the time we had gone through all the booths and hoped to do the house tour and then leave, the wait for the house tour was over an hour long and we had no desire to wait. If they want to improve this festival, they need to charge no admission and just charge for the house tour, etc. or add 3-4 more people doing the tours so that there is no or little wait to get in. They also should add some free blueberry pie or blueberry tasting without an additional charge. I just paid $20 to have some guy try to sell me siding for my house, I shouldn't have to pay an additional $3 for pie.
