Beautiful weather is one reason Blueberry Festival organizers said this year's event in Nacogdoches was bigger and better than ever.
About 13,000 people showed up for last weekend's event. Nearly 10,000 blueberry lovers were counted at last year's festival. More publicity, both locally and statewide, helped spread the word about the festival.
A new Web site on the blueberry extravaganza also helped bring in festival-goers.
