Event organizer and community center employee Cindy Ramseier said 1,037 people attended during the course of the six-hour show. Attendance was down about 300 from last year. Ramseier believes the beautiful weather kept some people from spending part of their day indoors.

Over 100 vendors were out in full force with pamphlets, business cards, and displays. The show was sponsored by the cities of Andover, Anoka and Coon Rapids.
