With the news this week that State Senator Mark Montigny is working to bring the Boston Pops to New Bedford, that got me thinking...what other cultural events would be big draws for the Whaling City?

Sen. Montigny said he wants to keep the momentum going following the visit of the Charles W. Morgan earlier this summer. I absolutely agree...now is the time to bring in significant cultural events in order to increase visibility for the city. Yes, we already have a great roster of fantastic events here in New Bedford, but we always could use more.

Personally, I'd like to see New Bedford steal away something like a Lollapalooza or Warped Tour festival from Mansfield, Boston or Providence.
