Festival Chairman, Gary Rivers, who began working on the festival in early April, said, “I’m simply amazed and excited about the support that the festival has received from a lot of caring people”.  He added, “This has shown me that Marion is a city that will come together to promote positive events and activities for their kids and families”.

Gary was quick to point out that there is still room for more businesses and organizations to participate.  “We would like to extend to an offer an any church, business or non-profit organization to be a part of this wonderful family event”, he said.  “While Columbus media may portray Marion in a negative light of late, the fact is, that Marion has thousands of good, productive citizens, and we can and do work together….look at how this festival just happenned in a just 12 weeks or so” , he added.
