Resident would like to see more concerts, performing artists come to Ocala

To the Editor:

This town is growing quite fast in the last three years. Seems the attractions are not for the younger crowd. There are lots of places here now that can accommodate concerts. Rock bands, R&B bands, and country music. I’m ashamed to hear that we forgot how to have fun. A restaurant is not an attraction. Seems every one is afraid to do something daring here. How about some music festivals downtown? I’d like to see Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, and lots of other pop concert stars here. The parks here have very few picnic tables and park benches. It’s like telling people ‘Look, but don’t come here.’ The water thing downtown? It’s trash compared to other city’s who have much bigger ones with inlaid padding to walk on so kids don’t skin up their knees playing in the water. Build a resort water park. Capable of having concerts and all types of music. Remember what it was like to be young. Loosen up those wallets and make some fun happen here in Ocala.
