Meteorologist Laura button now 7-Eleven. 11 minutes past 7 o'clock we Stephen Ted and as in we've been talking about this week. The river festival came to an end over the weekend and with a us this morning. Is the person who does all the work down there Mary Beth your purpose of which tough festival's laid right Mary Beth. I reckon that if I had to do other work river Cutler like yeah it just wouldn't happen. Yeah one of the things we talked about as is the number of volunteers talk about you volunteers are just a minute and a apparently. I'm about 200 volunteers that work record with just wrapped in here and they're gonna mastermind behind. Planning activities. Not only all the operations and financial. You know other certain aspects of the festival from the what you see many of Wichita. But also. Instead of apology as commander in. It looks like a record number apology issued her chest under a thousand. Came out and. You know did. The result they get they cleaned up the truth court date you know where. But sellers or whatever it is it needed to be done at her fat diet it kind of helped make it an amazing party. So what do you think you how many people do you think in I don't know how you do this but how do you estimate and a bully maybe 460000. Total came just one or more events is that right. Now yep it was absolutely broke last year from an attendance perspective than what we view it here for things like. Concerts will take over at pictures you'd greeted child and then another thing. We either replace it process. You know no person shall execute court you know second I think some event we used quicker and specifically count everybody coming out. And serve our side by. That way it'll. Healing really well and festival mother nature with carted but frankly I heard over and over again. Whereas that we had. Programming whether it's entertainment concert tour was unique performers I came into my all around the country other really are people and. But how does that would 460000. With a compare with the pass estimates for the river festival this for years. About that it was about last year of about 410 last year. Even here this war torn extremist with a wonderful as well it ended with the incredible concert with the roots we had good weather all year are all acceptable. That was about 465 that you and exceeded. That definitely one of the larger festival. We've got data for it in the last couple of decades. And we have we've talked with a police department nearly every day and Chrissie were the of the remainder a big part of your. Security for for everything went on down and days you know like two arrests. It's only candidate here is it's amazing. How well behaved people worker. And. That's exactly right I walked to the crowd every night and yeah you gotta since the news and make sure that nothing is brewing and the fact is that we had. Every representation and you know out of ages and groups around the community in from out of town. And everybody was paired together in the spirit of the festival that we had. Italy had a couple of folks at. You know share at about judgment and Derrick Knight got a little bit worse that. That would absolutely accidentally hit a record low number. Security incidents and we're just really really pleased with everybody. Pier it in that respect. What what you want to put button sales to Vitale that a merry band. Well we can only we only know it it's like our onsite button it'll just spoke right at the gate. And those were up 26%. Last year. You know you get just a couple more weeks. To get in numbers and the tail around Dylan been quick or so of the community. So we won't know that little button you know until later in the summer but he aren't they indicators. Really try our quick with a robot constable. You know and always think it was saying was going on bouquet were not committee arraignment. Good gravy some of those dig a little warm and toasty down there ever dated that. Al-Qaeda and you would have thought that it made people grumpy that now al-Qaeda in the summer spirit of the festival and it you we could not a trick the better here you know make available that giant. I note that that helped make it. You know cheaper and more pleasant festival and we were just happy we were able to do not solver and. Yet in our vets at Woodward here. I was you know we have mentioned earlier about people coming in from out of town on some times we don't think about that that I was up I was down their Friday night there are people right by me that could come in from Arkansas and they were here for two days they were talking and how they were they are coming up to see the concerts and staying overnight so.
