President and CEO of Fordham and Dominion, Jim Lutz, stated “We took a slightly different approach to R2Hop2 this year, choosing to focus on pulling in the small businesses that Kent County has to offer. Our goal with this festival is to bring the community together for one day for some great beer and great music.”
