Crazy Water Festival set for weekend

(Continued)

One new feature at this year’s festival will be the Crazy Water bath house facility. Although it won’t be open yet, Elder said guests will have the opportunity to view the new building, which has been made to feel like an authentic early 1900’s era bath house.

Also Community Animal Rescue Effort will be at the 95.9 FM the Ranch booth on 1st Avenue. They will pass out pamhplets about CARE and talk about the necessity to spay or neuter pets. A CARE representative said they also may bring a few animals that are up for adoption.

Elder said this year the festival is expecting between 60 to 100 student volunteers from Mineral Wells Junior High and Mineral Wells High School in addition to another 60 to 100 adult volunteers who will host different areas of the festival.

Last year’s festival put around $27,000 back into the community: a number that Elder hopes to surpass this year.

“Every year that amount increase,” she said. “We hope to break that this year.”

Former Mineral Wells Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Beth Watson said the festival should have a significant positive impact on the local economy.

“The Crazy Water Festival generates substantial economic activity from both tourists and locals as they prepare for the festival,” she said. “About 9,500 people attended last year, with an estimated 25 to 30 percent from out of the area. It also fills dozens of hotel rooms, so you are talking about a substantial impact for a weekend event.

The chamber could not be prouder to sponsor the festival and acknowledges the leadership of Carol Elder in making it a success.”

Admission to the festival is $3, with $1 off per canned food item donated to support local food banks.
