Kool-Aid Days announces stats from this year's celebration
Numbers are in from the Kool Aid Days festival this past weekend and by the look of the numbers many kids, and adults may now be finally coming down from their sugar highs. Overall the worlds largest Kool Aid Stand served up 2,118 Gallons in downtown Hastings and Brickyard Park. The top flavor at this years Kool-Aid Days was Ice Blue Raspberry Lemonade with 177.5 gallons served! In second, officials made 173 gallons of Grape Kool Aid at the event. Over 2000 people were present at Koncert Kool Aid, and over at the Hastings Museum 123 gallons was served over three days. Their top flavor was Sugar Free Cherry.
The numbers where slightly down from last year but officials believe that may be contributed to the 90 minutes that the stand was shut down do to inclement weather at Brickyard.
