The official numbers are not in yet, but some believe this year's event, given the perfect weather, may have drawn upwards of 200,000 people. With over 400 vendors and concessions, the county is tallying up the numbers once all of the permanent shops and restaurants turn in sale reports. News 25 talked with an Ocean Springs art gallery to see how the festival went. Cindy Brown of Coastal Breeze Art says, "This was our one year anniversary, and of course we only have that limited experience. It was much better this year in terms of traffic and exposure than last year. It didn't help that we could smell most of the food either, we stayed hungry most of the weekend." Broadcast journalism students from Ocean Springs High School will also for the first time create an official Peter Anderson Festival video.
