Natchez Balloon Festival officials say this year’s attendance may have been the largest ever.

“There is no question it was a good turnout,” Balloon Festival Site Director Scott Adams said Monday morning.

Adams said final numbers will not be tallied for several days but indications are the crowds were bigger than in recent years for the three-day weekend.

“I would certainly say they are up across the board,” Adams said.

Festival director Babs Price said she and other organizers were very happy with the turnout.

“We don’t have a count yet, but by eyeballing the crowds, I would say this year was one of the highest attendances we have ever had,” Price said.

This year the festival made several changes, including hiring Arden Barnett of Ardenland as its new music promoter.
