Brookville residents want to know: What’s happening to the Laurel Festival?

BROOKVILLE — A group of Brookville residents met with the Laurel Festival Board Monday evening to discuss concerns regarding the festival.
The meeting was at times tense, but both sides agreed on one thing: The Laurel Festival is in a state of decline.

“It’s frustrating,” resident Jen Radel said. “I love the Laurel Festival, and I want my kids to love it. It’s something that we get excited for. Then we’re disappointed year after year, and it leads to frustration.”
