Høstfest Rated a Success

Posted: Updated:

If you're filled up on Rommegrot, Lefse, and Lutefisk, you're probably one of the many people who attended this year's very successful Hostfest.

The Scandinavian festival brought many new ideas to the table, such as Statoil youth camps this year, but kept old traditions alive as well.

And although it was a week later than usual, the 2013 Hostfest was a success according to the president, David Reiten.

He says concerts this year like Alabama, Frank Sinatra Junior, and the Bellamy brothers are a big part of what made it such a good turnout.

And although advance sale tickets and RV parking were down slightly this year, numbers were made up in other areas.

(David Reiten, President of Hostfest) "They were down for advance sales, but we got a lot of walk-up traffic, and so that put us over the top from last year. So we're very very pleased."

David says that they are already working on planning, and booking groups for next year's Hostfest.
