DETROIT LAKES - Despite high gas prices and a sluggish economy that has curtailed many people's vacation travel plans this summer, Detroit Lakes' 26th annual WE Fest country music festival is expecting another sellout crowd this year.


"We're almost sold out," said Chyrll Sparks, vice president and national promotions director for Festivals And Concert Events (FACE), Inc., which runs WE Fest each year. "We have maybe 1,000 tickets left (as of Friday)."
