20,000 attend Haynes Apperson Festival
Paul Wyman, Haynes Apperson Festival chairman, sends this Cheer:
“First, let me thank our community once again for coming out and celebrating all that is good about Kokomo and Howard County at this year’s Haynes Apperson Festival. It just keeps getting better, thanks to all of you!
“Foster Park was a great venue to celebrate! We saw about 20,000 people over the three days of the event, and it was especially great to see so many travel to our community from around the region and the country. We had someone from London to see Night Ranger!
“I know we made a lasting impression on all our visitors! Our Convention and Visitors Bureau played a big role in attracting people from other communities. Thank you!
“Let me thank our board of directors and all of our volunteers for their tireless commitment to making our festival one of the premier festivals in the state. Your hard work has made our festival a ‘must attend’ on people’s to-do list for the summer. Thanks for your year-round commitment to making it great! Thanks to Angie Roe and the parade staff for an outstanding parade, and thank you, Dana Neer, for leading another huge HA Sports Festival.
“To our community partners, the Pioneer Club, the Car Coalition and our Automotive Museum, thanks for being such a huge part of helping us preserve our automotive heritage. We have so much to be thankful for, and the car shows and cruise-ins were awesome!
