To Acker Night has gotten too crazy. We just get there by 4 and have an early dinner. No worries about parking and then we're off to enjoy the music and crowds at 5:30. There was a lot of people, but that's the point. The event is to show case local talent AND make money for music scholarships. The more people the more money. We skipped a few shops because they were over crowded, but still only got through a portion of all there was to see and hear. The night was a huge success as always! Can't wait until next year!.

Acker night is great. Kind like Disneyland!! Check the photo gallery, the one with the dancing girls with the courthouse in the background is precious. I think J.S. Acker should be immortalized somehow in the courthouse square with a statue or plaque or something to let the everyday folk know of his wonderful deeds. From the couple at Kendall's to the Steel Drum Band, what a fun show!!

BUT, was put out by the baby strollers that occupied most of the sidewalks. Too big, please use the streets next year.

It is too bad that the entertainment provided at Acker Night is so good that it attracts a lot of people. May be it should be limited to a couple of kazoos and a tissue wrapped comb. If the fact you can't park right in front of your desired location, and you have mingle with others, is off putting, stay home and listen to the radio. The quality of the night, the music, the snacks, and hundreds of people enjoying them selves, is a great testimonial to Prescott and it's citizens. Please continue to come and just leave home earlier and walk an extra block.

To Acker Night has gotten too crazy. Numbers are what drives this festival to repeat every year and continue to raise money for a very worthy cause. More visitors attracts more acts and more of the necessary downtown business participation. I attend every year and always enjoy immensely the festivities, crowds, and the musicians. Each year participating businesses increase and those participants offer more hospitality for both the performers and the visitors. I expect that donation growth is commensurate. Prescott can handle the crowd. Don't be such an old poop, whatever your age.

Who told Phoenix and California to come here for Acker Night? It was a wonderful festival until suddenly it was overrun by the outside world. Our shops are too small, parking is too scarce to invite everyone. It was impossible to get into many shops to hear the music. I suspect many people who found a chair just stayed put for the night. I ended up going home disappointed. Let's move it to a weekday night and allow local residents to truly appreciate our own local talent.
