LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Cleanup got underway Monday at Waterfront Park after a jam-packed weekend.

The three day festival drew record crowds of more than 60,000 people over the weekend. All while the USA Gymnastics tournament helped pump $20 million into the city.

Mayor Greg Fischer praised the festival, saying "It brings a really nice feeling to the city, obviously tens of thousands of new people coming to the city at the same time so it gives us a great economic impact as well."

"All social media is just buzzing with everyone shouting from the rooftops what a great experience they had. we are so thrilled with the outcome of this event we really couldn't be happier," said Forecastle front-woman Holly Weyler.

Cleanup will be done by the end of the week. Forecastle organizers are already thinking ahead to next year, and are hoping to make 2015 bigger and better.
