Fremont chamber lowers festival attendance figures

Either the recent Fremont Festival of the Arts was the most poorly attended in years or the Fremont Chamber of Commerce has decided to adjust its attendance figures after they were called into question.

No more talk of 385,000 or “nearly 400,000 attendees. The latest estimate? More than 300,000.

From the Chamber’s newsletter:
Fremont Festival of the Arts draws large crowds: Organizers said the Fremont Festival of the Arts had another great run, as more than 300,000 people from all over the Bay Area turned out for the event last weekend. (8/12/2011)
