VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — Virginia Beach released the results of a poll that asked festival-goers about their experience at Something in the Water, and the results were pretty impressive.
The city sent the poll through its text alert system right after the three-day event. It asked people: "How was your visit to Something in the Water 2019?"
People answered based on a 1-10 scale system with "1" representing "Waste of Money" and 10 for "Awesome."
Out of more than 9,000 people who received the poll, only 1,611 responded.
Out of that pool of respondents, 80% rated the festival with a "10" and nearly 95% gave it a rating of "8" or higher.
The city plans to use the feedback to further its plans for next year's festival and plans to conduct more feedback sessions and meetings with other city organizations and leagues.
