Shrinersfest organizers say they're pleased with attendance at this year's festival.

Spokesperson Dale Thomas says button sales are strong and they're getting a lot of donations.
He also says Friday night's activities - along with the good weather - drew more people than last year.

He says they will be closely watching how many people attend the hydroplane races to see if they will bring a bigger exhibition next year.
Thomas says he won't know how the festival did financially for about thirty days.
