RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The annual Richmond Folk Festival wrapped up Sunday night, and organizers say more than 190,000 people made their way downtown this weekend.

That's 10,000 more people than organizers estimated would come.

Organizers also say they received the largest number of donations in the festival's six-year history. Festival workers say the warm weather helped beef up attendance this year.
