Volunteers cleaned-up this morning after thousands of visitors packed North Fulton Avenue for the three-day Volksfest event. Organizers are attributing an attendance increase to the mild summer weather.

"Last year, on Thursday, we got the storm come through, so that kind of killed Thursday. It was just too hot and humid last year. This year, we had a breeze blowing in," says Co-Chairman Jim Kluesner. "The weather was just perfect."

They say planning is well underway for next year's edition, which is scheduled to start August 7th, 2014. Jasper's Strassenfest also wrapped up today.
