Rainy weather and cloudy skies kept the crowd slow for most of the day at the first ParkFest on Tuesday, but by the time the programs wrapped up around 7:30 p.m., between 600 and 700 people had attended throughout the day, according to organizer Amy Stearns.


Due to inclement weather during the majority of the day, most activities were moved inside to the Pavilion or cancelled.

Still, Stearns said she was pleased with the attendance.
