Fun Fest 2016
People from all over the area converged on New Richmond for the 2016 Fun Fest celebration, which took place from Thursday, July 7-Sunday, July 10. Festivities included the annual parade, a bean bag tournament, a tractor pull, carnival rides and foods and much more.
The New Richmond Fire Department held the 51st Annual Firefighter's Water Battle last Saturday, July 9, during Fun Fest. The Deer Park Fire Department took both first and second place with a team from Prescott finishing third. For the 51st consecutive year, LaVenture volunteered their cranes to hoist the water ball. Before the firefighter's participated, kids were given an opportunity to work the nozzle along with the assistance of firefighters.
