Dogwood Festival attendance sets record number crowds

LEWISTON, ID - All the fun-filled events that make up the Dogwood Festival have come to an end.

The warmer weather over the weekend brought record setting crowds and some windy conditions at times to the LCSC campus for the 29th annual event. Performances, family-friendly activities, and the international-style food court are just some of the reasons why many say they'll be back next year.

"It's a nice park environment and I like that," said Portland Oregon resident Paul Crabtree. "Rather then on the street. Probably come back definitely."

"It's been a nice show, there is just a lot of people and a lot of people stopping by," said Hamilton Montana resident Mike Costanzo.

Art Under the Elms is the major fundraiser for Continuing Education and Community Events at Lewis-Clark State College. The Dogwood Festival has grown into one of the biggest outdoor festivals in the state of Idaho.
