CHARLESTON, W.Va. --While it might not have seemed very likely a few months ago, Multifest will return this weekend with three free days of entertainment, food and cultural diversity.
Joseph Lloyd, vice president of the annual festival, said, "Everything is back. All of our sponsors are on board, and we're glad they're able to help sponsor Multifest."
There was some doubt of that earlier this year after festival treasurer Debbie Starks pleaded guilty in January to embezzling more than $300,000 of Multifest funds between 2005 and 2010. Stephen Starks, her husband, the festival founder and president of its board, resigned not long after.
