Springfest hindered by lack of spring weather

If you’re one of the thousands of Springfesters that will be converging on University Park May 4 for the annual party, you could be drinking in a sweatshirt and rain boots if the park doesn’t dry up.

But come rain, snow or mud Springfest in Grand Forks will go on despite Mother Nature’s attempt to spoil the fun, say the music event’s organizers.

Late snowfall coupled with a fast melt has left University Park sopping wet, and it may not dry out by the event’s setup date on May 3, but organizer Arron Hendricks said he won’t cancel Springfest.

Last year, the event attracted more than 4,000, mostly UND students and young adults.
