Jazz Fest attendance down slightly this year

Officials with the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival say attendance was down slightly this year compared to last year.

In all, 425,000 peope entered the gates of the festival over two weekends.  That's about 25,000 fewer than last year's attendance.

Several days of rain that led to muddy conditions kept some fans away, though picture-perfect weather on the final Saturday and Sunday led to huge crowds.

Next year's Jazz Fest is scheduled for April 25 through May 4.
