Fun Fest draws crowds


This year's Fun Fest was the first Lisa Woletz has planned and she said it's only going to get bigger and better from here.

Woletz, who recently took over as director of the New Richmond Area Chamber of Commerce, said perfect weather and great crowds made this year's Fun Fest an outstanding event.

The festival, which was held July 11-14, drew average crowds, Woletz said.
