Merchants Divided Over VEISHEA Decision

Merchants in Campustown have mixed feelings about the decision to do away with VEISHEA.

Christy Radach owns Grandma’s Attic in Aampustown. She says she enjoyed watching the streets fill up with VEISHEA revelers and is saddened that what she calls a few bad apples have ruined it for the rest. “It’s been a tradition for a lot of people and there’s an awful lot of people that put an awful lot of work into it and they’re not out there rioting and tearing down light poles and so I kinda worry that they’re being punished as well for something they didn’t do.”

Dipak and Asha Biswas own the Indian Delights Restaurant right across the street. They watched the riot form, and believe doing away with VEISHEA is the right decision.

“It looked like a huge mob,” Dipak recalled., “They were all jumping on cars and around the ceiling of the different buildings. They were on the trees. They were everywhere. And it was really a dangerous situation even for their own lives.”

“They were just wild,” Asha added. “And it’s only when one of the kids got hurt that the lamp post broken down that they quieted down.”

Merchants we spoke with would like to see some type of event that promotes the college and the city of Ames, as long as that event is productive and not destructive.
