"I'm glad we did because every field where we park the cars is totally flooded.
It's like a lake out there."Dunn said the news of the festival's cancellation has upset many people, but she said it's too risky to go ahead with this year's event.
Makanda Spring Fest, which for the past 26 years brought live music, art and skilled craftsmanship to the village described as "the Valley of the Arts," has been canceled.
The festival has been on the first weekend of May since 1988 and has seen soggy weather conditions in recent years, making it difficult to host the event in the low-lying area."Last spring, we had too many issues with the flooding of the fields that we park the cars in, and we went around to everybody and nobody was happy," said festival coordinator Debbie Dunn. Instead of taking a chance, the committee decided to cancel this year's event."We pretty much said, 'Let's put it on hold, the weather being as crazy as it is,'" Dunn said.

* How did the poltergeist, also called the Bell Witch, learn to talk?Dunn did say Makanda will hold a grand opening for a few new shops in the village the first week in May, with music in the Rainmakers Garden.She also said Spring Fest is not being discontinued, but will be evaluated each spring."We're just going to keep our eyes on it," Dunn said."Usually, I start two months prior; so if in March it looks like it will be a mild spring, we'll definitely put it back on."Even without Spring Fest this year, the Makanda Boardwalk is still alive and well, and Vulture Fest will return the third weekend of October."It's going to be bigger and better," Dunn said.A poltergeist (Bell Witch) haunted the family of John & Lucy Bell from 1817-1821.
