It looks like Fennimore’s annual Spring

festival known as Fun Fest is off again for this

year. That’s according to Fennimore

Promotions Coordinator Linda Parrish, who

says the core committee that organizes the

event, decided Thursday to pull the plug on

this year’s festival. The decision came after a

lengthy discussion.

Among the issues…they’re behind on

fundraising…just seven weeks to pull

everything together…and probably the

the biggest issue…the carnival.

In addition, because no money had been raised

for this year’s Fun Fest, there’s no way they

could even book the fireworks.

So there will be no Fun Fest in Fennimore this

year. However it will return next year and will

be held on June 6th and 7th.
