WINFIELD - This weekend Winfield will welcome an extra 15,000 to 20,000 people into town for the 45th annual Mule Day Festival.
Winfield Chamber of Commerce president Debbie Killingsworth, in her first year in that role, says these last few days have been hectic as she prepares for the festival. On top of her chamber duties, Killingsworth also serves as the collection agent for State Bank and Trust.
“People are still calling and wanting booth space,” Killingsworth said as she arranged decorations in front of the bank’s mid-town branch, a prime viewing spot along the annual Mule Day parade.
Killingsworth said food and arts-and-crafts vendors from across the United States have been calling since just after last year’s festival requesting booth space.
