FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — A festival celebrating Fort Wayne's rivers could be coming to an end because of budget cuts at Indiana-Purdue Fort Wayne.
The school has put on the one-day RiverFest event each summer since 2010 with activities in and along the St. Joseph River as it passes through the campus.
The News-Sentinel reports that IPFW Chancellor Vicky Carwein said in a message to faculty and staff members that the decision to end sponsorship of RiverFest came as officials looked to make $4 million in spending cuts.
The school expects a funding drop as its enrollment declined this year by about 300 students to about 13,700.
IPFW officials say other spending cuts should be decided in the coming weeks.
