The Spirit of the Lakes festival has a new look this year, which the organizers say they hope modernizes the festival’s appeal.
“We wanted the logo to be easily recognizable,” said Spirit of the Lakes Board Member Gwen Wood. “We feel like this really captures the feel of the weekend and is more up to date.”
The old logo featured colorful fireworks over the name of the festival. The new logo has bolder colors and a more nautical theme, which Wood said she hopes draws people in for more than just the Saturday evening firework show.
The festival is set to start on Friday, July 21 and with time quickly winding down until that weekend, the medallion hunt is underway. For the sixth straight year, a medallion has been hidden around Mound for the lucky winner to find. The first clue was released on Sunday, June 25 on spiritofthelakes.com, with new clues coming out every Saturday and Sunday until the medallion is found.
