The festival was mostly canceled last year due to the pandemic. Nut Club members still held the popular half pot raffle, which raises money for area non-profits.

The half pot is back this year, and tickets are now on sale.

As of 2:50 p.m. Monday, the first day of sales, the half pot was already at nearly $58,000 and climbing fast.
