2013 Felix Grundy Festival dates announced

The Felix Grundy Festival board of directors and planning committee are eager to announce the 2013 Felix Grundy Festival will be held July 12-13,

“We looked at the calendar and discovered that more times than not the festival has been and would be held on the second Saturday of July. We researched concerns regarding competing local festivals. We also took into consideration volunteer recruitment efforts when the Festival would have fallen so close to the 4th of July holiday,” said Mitch Biersner, 2012 Felix Grundy festival chair.

The Fourth of July fell on a Wednesday last year and will be on a Thursday this year. The scheduling of class reunions was also considered.

“The reason we’re getting the word out now is to allow time for the reunions to be scheduled. Venues that we know about have been booked already for reunions the second Saturday weekend. We’re hoping this will make it easier to plan for future reunions,” Biersner said.
