It was the largest single-day attendance since they began keeping records. The previous record was Saturday of last year’s Festival with 2, 534 guests.
CheChehaw’s Executive Director, Doug Porter said of the event, “it is fantastic to see this many people enjoying the Festival. It fills hotel rooms, it brings people to the restaurants, and it gets people out to do some shopping. I think all around it’s great for the city of Albany.”
