Pull quote:


I [Maryanne Webber] think Lake Worth is so diverse, so trendy and quirky. When we started (the festival) we were trying to change people’s perception of it.”

     Bruce Webber [Maryanne’s husband] recalls that at the time the festival began, “half of Lake Avenue was empty. [emphasis added] We wanted people to know this was a fun, quirky town rather than a dirty, seedy one.”
