Sonshine finishes strong despite storm evacuation
WILLMAR -- The 29th annual Sonshine Festival finished as planned Saturday evening after a potential storm threatened to cancel the festival's closing performances.
At around 5:30 p.m. Saturday, the Sheriff's Reserve patrolling the grounds advised all festival campers to take down their tents because of a possible storm with high winds and hail expected. Security had been preparing for a storm all afternoon, according to Sgt. Julie Asmus of the Willmar Police Department.
