If not, we're doomed, and then have to wait until July for more tourists to come spend their summer with us. You can imagine what that does to those of us who work for the retail businesses that can only be open if we have tourists.
(The place I work for is only open full-time 7 months out of the year - the other 5, he is only open a few hours here and there on the weekends, and usually, the owner is the one running it, the rest of us are laid off temporarily)
