    Mayfest

    Mayfest is coming back for 2010, according to event organizers.

    Mayfest supporters received an e-mail this week saying not even the flu will stop the festival like it did this year.

    The message came as a surprise to the event's usual hosts -- Fort Worth city officials tell the Star-Telegram they were unaware of the announcement.

    The longterm future of Mayfest is still unclear though as the non-profit group needs to make back the half-million dollars lost to this year's event.

    "Right now we have enough money to move forward [for Mayfest 2010], with the exception of the operating reserve," said Elizabeth Basham, Mayfest Inc. executive director told the Star-Telegram. "We’re missing our savings account."
