Winterfest gets a new leader: Lisa Scott-Founds. A Florida native and avid swimmer, Lisa grew up on the water, so it’s only natural that she would be attracted to the boat parade. Volunteering on the marketing committee at Winterfest since 1987 and working as the Executive Director since 1996, Lisa has been instrumental in making Winterfest “The Best Show on H2O.” Her vibrant personality and ability to bring the community together quickly has made her the face of Winterfest.
