We’ve said it before, but really, I don’t think there’s a limit on how many times you can say thank you. So we’re saying it again and again.
Thank you. Thank you.

Thank you to our many sponsors, who are all listed below.

Of course, all of the sponsors contributed greatly in making our Festival the success it was.
Surely I’ve forgotten someone.
Which is why I’ll continue to say thank you again and again.
