Early on Saturday, it looked like the sun wouldn’t join Kirkwood for its annual shindig. When the festival kicked off this morning, the sky was overcast and it was sprinkling.

But things cleared up by early afternoon, and Spring Fling was in full effect. Festival-goers threw back cups of tart Kirkwood sangria and listened to rock music while sitting on the green grass in Bessie Branham Park.

Chris Wooton was selling slices for Urban Pie, “Kirkwood style pizza.”

Woodon said Kirkwood style is “thin and crispy.”

“That’s all we do,” he added.

Wooton said business was good and the crowds were cool.  “It’s been very nice.”

The Spring Fling is the annual fundraiser for the Kirkwood Neighbors’ Organization. KNO President Jeffery Childers was pleased with the turn out and thankful the rain moved on.

“I’m just so glad people came out to support the KNO because this is our biggest fundraiser and we look forward to it growing each and every year,” he said.
