    "Whorehouse Days" Festival Denounced

    GILBERT, Minn. - Promoting this town's proud history is one thing. Naming the town's festival Gilbert Whorehouse Days is another thing entirely.



    A group of angry citizens showed up at a City Council meeting Tuesday to protest the event. The festival's name refers to a time when Gilbert was known for its bars, gambling and "working girls" during Prohibition.

    "The damage has been done," resident Fran Marolt said. "This is not a family-oriented activity."

    The event doesn't include any of the activities that gave the festival its name, but City Council members still don't approve. ..................................
