HARRY: People of Stars Hollow, and our many friends. It gives me great pleasure to preside over our annual Founders Festival for the thirty-second time. Many a true love has had it start right on the spot where I stand. And I don’t mind telling you that at this very festival, right by this gazebo, is where I met my own true love, Miss Dora Braithwaite. We have been married for 43 years, and it all started right here.
Harry Porter has been mayor of Stars Hollow since 1968/1969, and was married in 1957/1958. Harry’s statement emphasises the importance of the festival and gazebo in bringing lovers together, just as he met his wife there.
