WJBD - Local News - Rain Holds Down Crowds At Alma Fall Festival

Owners of three dozen vehicles that braved the rain show their cars at the Alma Fall Festival on Saturday.

What would a Fall Festival be without apples?

Pumpkins, jewelry and crafts were among the items available at the Alma Fall Festival.

Rain Holds Down Crowds At Alma Fall Festival

By Bruce Kropp, WJBD News

The mid-day rain on Saturday hurt the Alma Fall Festival.  

Mayor Russell Swift says they had a good crowd Saturday morning before the rains hit.  Once the rain cleared, some returned to the park to listen to the music, play children's games, look over the craft vendors and maybe even buy some apple projects.  

Many nostalgic vehicles lined the street in front of the village hall and post office.  However, Swift says only about three dozen vehicles showed up this year.  He blames the drop from last year on the rainy weather forecast.  

Proceeds from the Alma Fall Festival will go towards park improvements and Christmas lighting in the village.
