APPLETON - A local music festival is looking to reach a bigger audience around the state.

Appleton's Mile of music received money today to spread the word about the festival.

The Department of Tourism's $37,000 grant was presented during a live performance in Houdini Plaza.

The board of tourism hopes the festival -- only in its second year -- can continue to grow and attract people from other cities.
