Marion Kicks Off 5th Annual Hubfest
MARION -- The annual Hubfest brought thousands of people to the downtown area. There were live performances, food vendors, and plenty of crafts and merchandise to buy. This year, organizers say they added contests for children and animals.
This is the fifth year for the festival. Organizers want to attract more attention and business to downtown Marion. They say this is their biggest year so far.
"A lot of people do not realize how much potential and how much is actually still down in the downtown area. So this is just an event where we're trying to make people realize we're here," says President of Marion Main Street Meredith Ashe.
Ashe says in the future, they'd like to add carnival rides.
