12:21 AM - Loss of a friend of the DMRF. (posted by Webmaster)
It is with great sadness that I share news of the loss of a festival friend, Brad Nelson. Brad potrayed "King Oberon" (of the faery court). He was also the Tin Woodsman at the Iowa Pumpkin Festival last October at Festival Park. He was easily recognized and remembered by anyone who encountered him.

Brad passed away Tuesday March 13th and will be dearly missed by those who knew him. His presence within our fantasy realm was always one of fun, friendship and happiness. Our thoughts are with his family during this time of loss.

Rest in peace, King Oberon. The forest won't be the same without you, but your memory will live on in all of us.
