Alexandria's annual three-day Memorial Day weekend festival, Ole Oppe Fest, wrapped up its three-day run Sunday.

The festival dodged some showers Sunday morning, but otherwise played host to unusually warm temperatures and mostly sunny skies.

In addition to a vendor fair, a beer garden and live music, there were a car show and a wing ding dipping sauce contest Saturday.

Sunday was Kids and Family Day at Big Ole Park.
