Ticket sales reached $114,322, an increase of $17,000 over last year's event.

With several local bands performing live music, and a culinary cook off among local chefs, the event highlighted the city's exciting and vibrant downtown area.

"With our downtown efforts it was good to introduce as many people as possible to downtown," said Alpharetta Mayor David Belle Isle. "There's so much character downtown. What a great opportunity as we try to focus on making that a great point for a community and a hometown."
