AUGUSTA,Ga (WJBF) If you thought there were huge crowds at Augusta’s Art in the heart festival two weeks ago… you were right.
The annual three day event drew a record crowd to downtown Augusta. Organizers say a new way of selling badges was used, and that probably played a role.
It was an record breaking year we sold more advance badges at our Suntrust banks we tried a new thing selling badges on line we really didn’t know if we would sell a hundred or two hundred and we sold about eight thousand in advance of the festival and over 25 hundred the week of the festival,” says Brenda Durant, of the Greater Augusta Arts Council
They’re already making plans for next years festival which will be the third weekend in September.
