TULSA - By all accounts, last weekend's Center of the Universe Festival in Tulsa's Brady Arts District was a huge success.
Organizers had projected attendance of 40,000, but say early estimates indicate nearly 100,000 people flocked downtown for the festival.
Some 80 bands at more than a dozen venues entertained the huge crowds, while vendors sold food, beverages, and art.
Phil Kaiser and Chris Leiberman, who produced the festival, tell KRMG they heard from a number of area business owners who told them they had record sales during the festival.
Police and EMSA reported a minimal number of issues, despite the huge crowds.
Organizers say they have already begun planning for the 2014 festival.
Proceeds from the non-profit event will help expand the schedule of the downtown trolley, which currently operates only on weekend evenings.
Other money will go to help attract new artists and installations to the Brady Arts District.
Official attendance numbers should be released shortly.
