Funfest Draws Visitors from Across USA
Lori Payne, Committee Chairwoman of Funfest, says the weeklong summer festival in Kingsport TN usually draws people from across the country. On the average, 100,000 people come to enjoy the festivities and visitors from 17 different states have come in just for Funfest. According to Payne, it usually takes Funfest committee members about 11 months to plan and prepare for the event. She says sponsors and committee members do their best to make each year a little bit better. One of the new events this year is a Mini-Makerís Fair, where participants will be given the chance to learn more about different Do It Yourself craft projects from making robots to basket weaving. The weeklong celebration starts this Saturday. To learn more about Funfest, Payne says to visit www.visitkingsport.com/funfest. (hra)
