NEW BERN, N.C. (WNCT) - New Bern hosted the 35th annual Mumfest this weekend, a sign of resilience from a community that was underwater a month ago.
"What we are trying to do is get New Bern back to its normalcy and I think this event is a big part of it and we are going to do some more of them," said New Bern Mayor Dana Outlaw. "We are going to compensate for things that are not being done in Eastern North Carolina, we are going to be doing them here in New Bern."
While there are still millions of dollars of damage around the city of New Bern, Mayor Outlaw says they are working to get everything back in order and hope's the public will be patient with the process.
But until then many hope this weekend's event will help bring some much-needed cheer back to the Bear City.
