WESTMINSTER - With a record-breaking attendance this year, FallFest collected $21,000 during the celebration last weekend, said Carol Donovan, the city's supervisor of activities and recreation.

"That's double what we grossed last year," she said.

In addition, police officials estimate between 40,000 and 50,000 people visited the festival, Donovan said.

"Without admission it's hard to say (how many came to FallFest), we're so spread out," she said. "But, by far, it's the biggest crowd we've ever had."

Donovan said a committee will meet at the end of October to determine how much will be donated to Junction, the Boy Scouts and Family and Children's Services.

Before that time, city officials must pay bills, such as those for entertainment and upgrading the playground's electricity sources.

"We spent a lot of time plugging people in and unplugging them," Donovan said.
