MANTORVILLE, Minn. (KTTC) – Rain or shine, the excitement was blooming at Mantorville’s Marigold Days festival this weekend.
It’s grown to be one of Southeast Minnesota’s best-known and most attended festivals — just under 15,000 visitors come out every year. This year was no different, despite the rainy and cool weather over the weekend. On Sunday, hundreds came out for the fair food and live entertainment with an umbrella in hand.
We spoke to a group of high school students who come out to the Marigold Days festival every year because it gives back to their school teams.
“It’s just a festival to get the town together,” said resident Megan Paulson.
“We’re in soccer and usually Marigold always donates some money to us to help our programs. We help out with Marigold Days, as well,” Karlee Wynia added.
