Gospel Fest canceled

October 8, 2010

Newton's Gospel Fest is canceled for a lack of interest.
The annual festival, which is usually held in December, was moved to Oct. 10 as an outdoor event at Southside Park in Newton.
"We have usually done (the Gospel Fest) before at Christmas, and we had great success there," said Marcie Winkler, administrative assistant for Newton Parks and Recreation. "We tried something different this year with an outdoor event."
Winkler said about three groups registered for this Sunday's event, but is about half of the groups participating in the usual indoor holiday festival.
"There was not enough interest this year," Winkler said. "We definitely will try it again."
