The seventh annual Flatwater Music Festival at the Prairie Loft Center for Outdoor and Agricultural Learning drew 1,287 people during the two-day event.

Last year's festival drew just more than 1,000 attendees.

Saturday's jam sessions and drum circle each drew about 30 musicians, and spectators and local musicians received generous support on the event's "Shady Stage," as well.

"Saturday couldn't have been better," said Amy Sandeen, Prairie Loft director. "The comments I got from people were strictly positive, and the bands were happy, too."
