The Story
Hyped as an epic holiday tradition-to-be, A Christmas Tabernacle in Liberty Station last month turned into a yuletide nightmare. Scores of performing groups and small businesses haven’t been paid for their involvement, ranging from carolers and ballet companies to reindeer owners.
The Clash

The Bigger Picture
This is a cautionary tale for arts groups and small businesses who buy in to a vision and go forward even when they don’t collect on protections like a deposit upfront.
