      Harbor Fest has record crowd despite challenging weather

      The preliminary results are in for Harbor Fest.

      The Marquette West Rotary Club says it had a record crowd and food and beverage sales. Harbor Fest kicked off last Thursday with a sold out Waterfront Gala, which raised over $20,000. Harbor Fest continued Friday and Saturday and raised an additional $20,000, despite challenging weather conditions at times. Reports say that the Friday night crowd numbered 1,500, while the Saturday attendance was over 3,000.

      The money raised goes to numerous non-profit organizations throughout Marquette County.

      The Rotary Club says they are already starting to plan 2015's Harbor Fest, which will be held August 20 through August 22.
