Sunfest a Success

Sunfest a Success

Another Sunfest has wrapped up and organizers, along with the vendors and police all call it a success. 

A spokesman for the West Palm Beach Police Department says that despite around 150,000 people heading to the waterfront over a five day period, there were no major problems.  Very few arrests were made and a new effort to handle medical concerns on site is being cited for helping officers focus on other safety concerns. 

As for the economic impact to the community, this year's number isn't known just yet, but last year Sunfest organizers say it brought in nearly $15 million.
