The Red River Revel Arts Festival wraps up once again and artists are looking over their sales.
"Oh it's good. Down a little bit but not much," said Bertha Harris. "I have a lot of repeat customers. That's what's helped me."
"Art is not a necessity. So it's pretty tough," said Sidney Carter, of Sidney's Creations. "That's why a lot of people need to come out and support us."
While art sales may have been slower this year, food vendors said people just couldn't get enough of what they had to offer.
"Our sales have been through the roof this year," said Sarah Rivers, a freshman at Centenary College and a sister of Zeta Tau Alpha Sorority.
"Great weather and the Tech and A&M game, it's just spectacular for out meat pie sales. Also, last Saturday even though it was cold, our hot chocolate sold well."
Organizers are calling the 2012 Revel a success, and estimate that more 160,000 people came out to the festival.
"Granted it was cool the opening weekend but we still had good attendance," said Kip Holloway, the Executive Director of the Red River Revel Arts Festival. "Off a little from last year. Obviously the weather has been spectacular since that time. "
