I haven't heard the official numbers but it seemed a little less crowded to me than in 2008. I suspect more locals skipped it this year and that may be why. (Happened to Jazz Fest, too, once it got really huge).

Also, the crowds were more spread out along the river all the way from the Mint to the Aquarium. This helps with crowd control and "flow."

It's a great event and I'm glad you enjoyed it!

I agree, the Saturday crowd was amazing. The wife and I worked ( volunteered) Abita Beer Tent #11 in Jackson Square on Sunday. The crowd on Sunday appeared to be similar in size to the Friday crowd.

As usual our French Quarter Festival memories will last 4ever, we miss New Orleans already!

Yeah, it definitely felt less crowded to me than last year, but I don't know for sure.

I don't have anything to compare it to but Saturday didn't get too crowded until early afternoon. The longest line at any of the food places where 3-7 people. Only saw a couple beer lines of more than a couple people. It was pretty crowded in the tighter areas along the waterfront.
