The numbers are in and there's a big increase in the number of folks who attended this year's Fringe Festival.
Organizers of the 2013 First Niagara Rochester Fringe Festival say more than 50,000 people attended this year. That's a 50 percent increase over last year's attendance.
Organizers doubled the days of the festival this year, extending it from five to 10 days.
Other positive factors: Unseasonably warm temperatures and lots of sunshine throughout the event.
