Another Portage Potato Festival is in the books. Saturday was the third annual event, and Chair Karen Weibe is pleased with attendance. She thinks it's comparable to the last two festivals. Weibe's also looking toward 2007, with a couple of ideas. She plans to step aside as chair next year, and hopes someone will come forward to take over.
The expanded childrens' activities are the biggest highlight of the festival for Weibe. She says they provided a lot of fun for the kids.
