Taste of Cincinnati sets new record

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The Taste of Cincinnati has set a new attendance record in 2013.

Over 550,000 people visited the event this year, which is 10 percent higher than event organizers anticipated. They also set a new recording for their opening day on Saturday.

The Taste of Cincinnati projected attendance numbers based on sales. Since the event is free and a non-gated event, they cannot get a precise number.

One food vendor told Taste of Cincinnati Organizers that he sold more food on Saturday than he had on entire weekends in years past.
