Festus Blues and Funk fest coming soon

(Festus) The annual Blues and Funk Festival in Festus is coming up in less than two weeks. This event was previously run by Friends of the Festus Parks, but the group dissolved and now the City has taken over the planning. Barb Lowry is the Festus Director of Tourism and Recreation. She says they booked two great acts that a lot of people are excited about.

Lowry says they will have food and drink available for purchase.

The Blues and Funk Festival is free to attend and it takes place starting at 6 o’clock Saturday night, August 7th at Crites Park in Festus.
