Jazz Fest Winding Down

Xerox Rochester Int'l Jazz Festival

Attendance figures won't be known until the last day, but if the rains stay away, organizers of the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival say they may be looking at a record turnout this year.  

Marc Iacona is executive director and co-producer of the festival.

He says it all comes down to Friday and Saturday.

A record 187-thousand people attended last year -- five thousand more than 2011.
He says the music will go on -- rain or shine.

Iacona says there are various club pass venues people can catch music and get out of the rain.

There's also a free tent where people can wait it out.

The festival wraps up Saturday night.
