Cinder City Days in Altoona concludes, attendance up

Posted:

Altoona (WQOW) - Cinder City Days in Altoona wrapped up on Sunday. Organizers said numbers were looking good this year.

"Park attendance here was very good," said Bud Waite, president of the Altoona Lions Club. "We had our music down in the park. Great turn out for the karaoke sing off on Friday evening. And last night, from what I understand, we were right around, I think we sold around 2500 tickets. They figured there was probably close to 3000 people."

Waite said last year the concert sold between 1,800 and 2,000 tickets.

In addition to this year's most popular event, Diamond Rio, Waite said the car show and 'Chicken in the Park,' were up in attendance from last year. Overall, organizers expect numbers to exceed last years.
