This year’s attendance to Brigade Days was probably the best ever, said the organizing committee’s vice-president Mark Petryk.
As of now, that statement is an estimate, as the committee is still counting the number of wristbands sold.
“I hope that we had over 6,000 people there because over the two days, three days, it sure seemed like it,” said Petryk.
Petryk said the biggest draws to the event were the Tenfour Briggie-X Endurocross and concerts on Saturday, and on Sunday, the motorsports events.
All these events happened at the Hope Sports Bowl.
“Just the logistics that we dealt with — We built an endurocross track. We backed-in and erected a fully functional stage in the middle of an ongoing race. We tore the track out within an hour and had a concert. Ripped up the stage and we had 4×4 and demo derbies,” said Petryk. “That alone, is, I think, some pretty impressive logistics on our part.”
Having West Coast Amusements return to Brigade Days also drew many participants, he said.
