The city uses money from concerts like Wild Splash that have paid tickets to help pay for free events like Sea-Blues and the Clearwater Jazz Holiday.

The city also sells water at these concerts to make money. There were about 672 bottles sold over the weekend, according to Joelle Castelli, city spokeswoman.

Aside from the 10 different performers over the two-day event, here are some other numbers:

Day 1

1 - ejection
1 - accident (A person tripped over a parking stop block in the library parking lot.)
