Efforts to bring a spring festival to the area could get a boost from the Joplin City Council. A few days ago, an organizing committee met to discuss the possibility of a spring festival for Joplin. Tonight officials with the Joplin Convention and Visitors Bureau plan to ask for the councils blessing to proceed with the project. At the next council meeting the bureau hopes to receive about $32,000 in funding to help get the project off the ground. A special work session is being held tonight to discuss the festival.
