Fun Fest fading?
Fun Fest is on the move.
The New Richmond Area Chamber of Commerce and its executive director Russ Korpela are working on plans to revitalize what they feel is a dying community celebration.
At Monday's New Richmond City Council meeting, Korpela outlined some of the proposed changes to the annual mid-July gathering.
Korpela reported that Fun Fest is in a "significant life cycle downswing" after 50 years of existence.
