Art In Bloom kicked off this weekend and organizers say so far the numbers look to have broken a record.

One the Event Coordinators, Amy Rose, says there were an extra five-thousand people who went to the festival.

She says the minute it opened on Saturday, crowds were everywhere, shoulder to shoulder.

Rose says not only was it great for the community, but also for small businesses in the area.

"We try not to do for many food vendors and just keep it right here in the stores and it definitely worked. They were slammed," Rose said.

She says they usually estimate about 20-thousand people over the weekend, but this time there were about 25 to 30 thousand people who attended the festival.
