"Wind Down Wednesday" kicks off in Albert Lea

Posted:

ALBERT LEA, Minn. (KTTC) -- Despite having to move its location, Albert Lea's second annual "Wind Down Wednesday" kicked off on Wednesday. 

The market and music festival began in 2012 on Broadway as a way to attract new visitors to the city's downtown.  Construction on Broadway Ave. has forced the festival to move to Central Park this year.

Still, hundreds showed up for the event which features food, artisans, and musicians from southern Minnesota.

"I didn't even know about it until a couple of days ago -- it seems really cool -- we're having fun," said Jordan Netzer of Princeton, Maine. 

More than 25 vendors are participating in "Wind Down Wednesday" this year.  Wednesday's event was one of three to be held this summer.  The festival will return on July 17 and Aug. 21.
