The Seabreeze Jazz Festival this year was a huge success. The fun thing about this event is that it’s a ticketed event and with that we know exactly how many people attended. This year there was approximately a 25% increase in attendance over last year. There were 7200 people in Aaron Bessant Park on Saturday and 6900 on Sunday. The Border’s Friday Free Sneek Peak netted around 250 attendees and resulted in patrons doing the electric slide in between the book shelves to tunes from Brian Culberson.
There’s no question this event is a huge asset to our area.
If you had a great visit and fun weekend, you’ll probably be interested to know that tickets for next years festival go on sale on Sunday May 1, 2011 – that’s right, this Sunday! I’ve been told the VIP tickets are the first to go, so if you want ’em, you better get them soon.
Here are some more pictures – enjoy!
