Thousands of people made their way to Elmwood Park for the two weekend event which ended yesterday.
This is the first Festival to take place without long-time director Wendi Schultz.

Water service was shut down for parts of Northwest Roanoke yesterday.
A problem at the Delray pumping station led to no or discolored water for most of the day throughout the city.
A city spokesperson says workers have located and fixed the problem.
No word on how many people were affected but the city says the number was significant.

Roanoke City's public pools are ready to splash into the summer despite city water concerns...
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=03-Roanoke]


The city filled the pools much earlier this year because of partial water restrictions in Roanoke.
Once Carvin's Cove hits 26 feet below the spillway, full mandatory water restrictions will go into effect.
That will mean city residents will not be allowed to fill their outdoor pools.
However, the city's pools will remain open.

The city is helping conserve water by closing each of the two pools for one day a week.
The Fallon Park pool will be closed on Tuesdays and Washington Park Pool will close on Wednesdays.
The pools officially open for the season next Saturday.

These Yellow-Crown Night-Herons have been living in the back yard of a Roanoke family's home for about four years now.
The birds are federally protected, but became homeless when the tree that housed their nests was uprooted during Saturday's storm. About a dozen nests were crushed when the tree fell, killing at least ten of the birds, but a few fledglings were rescued.

It should open by September after some major renovations.

They'll be replaced with new seats that are wider and have more leg room.
New projectors and a digital sound system will also be installed.
Workers will also restore the gargoyles in the main theater and then add lighting so you can actually see them during the movie.

((JUSTIN McLEOD/REPORTING: WHEN THE GRANDIN RE-OPENS THE CONCESSION STAND HERE IN THE LOBBY WILL REMAIN THE SAME AT LEAST FOR NOW. BUT FUTURE PLANS CALL FOR TEARING DOWN THIS WALL THAT YOU SEE HERE. BEHIND IT IS THIS SCREENING ROOM WHICH THEY PLAN TO REPLACE WITH THE CONCESSION STAND.))

((NAT SOUND OF RICHARD SHOWING AND TALKING ABOUT THE RENOVATIONS))
But all this work costs money.
So far, the Grandin Theatre Foundation has raised nearly a million dollars.
Most of that money is coming through the star campaign.
For a thousand dollars, your name will be featured out front in the theater's walk of fame.
