Festival draws crowd to WR
Live entertainment, food vendors, a variety of booths and perfect weather helped make downtown Walnut Ridge the place to be on Saturday.
Karen Williams, chair of the Chamber's Activities Committee, which organizes the Iron Mountain Festival, said she approximates the crowd at between 4,000 and 5,000 people.
"I think it was the best ever," Williams said. "It was a huge success."
Special events during the festival included the annual Walk of Hope, a martial arts demonstration and board break by the Allied Tang Soo Do Federation, a Miss Iron Mountain contest and a dog costume contest.
The festival, which is an annual event, has grown over the years into what Williams sees as a great asset for the city of Walnut Ridge and Lawrence County.
