Fish Kill Impact On Mumfest

Fish continue to go belly up in the Neuse River in Craven County.

Lower Neuse Riverkeeper Larry Baldwin says the number is in the hundred millions now, but Mumfest organizers don't expect the stench that hung around New Bern weeks ago to effect the cities largest festival this weekend.

Officials say they're expecting several thousand visitors to flock to the area to hop on all the rides and eat some great food.

The major fish kill began in the middle of August and has continued through October.
