For the first time in the 20-year history of Westminster Fallfest, vendors at the four-day celebration will be prohibited from selling carbonated beverages, a move that has drawn criticism from a local nonprofit group.The Westminster Optimist Club has complained to the nine-member Fallfest Committee, criticizing its decision to bar the club and 17 other food vendors from selling carbonated drinks."Fallfest is one of our biggest moneymakers," said Henry Lysy, Optimist president. "With this policy, they take about 50 percent of the funds we usually raise at this event and basically give the money to another organization."
