Mayfest 2006

Tulsa's 34th annual Mayfest wrapped up Sunday evening. The downtown outdoor music and arts festival has reached the end of its four-day run.

Mayfest numbers usually depend on Mayfest weather. The weather has been pretty good, borderline hot and business, well it depends on who you ask.

The News on 6 snagged a ride on one of the official Mayfest go-carts to chat with festival chairman Anne Gillingham. She's led Mayfest for three years and she says this is one of her best years yet.

Gillingham says foot-traffic has been good and artists new to the festival have really enjoyed it. But some food vendors say business has been steady, but not strong.

Jada Oxendine, Jack's Corndogs: " Last year it was a lot busier than it was this year. I figured with the weather it would be a lot busier. Saturday night was steady, but not as busy as it was last year."

Mayfest chair Anne Gillingham: "Since I've been the chair of it for three years this is definitely the best year I've seen as far as the weather cooperating."

Organizers don't have the final numbers yet. But they say Sunday's crowd is giving the festival a strong finish.
