We came, we saw and we fested. Summerfest has come and gone once again, and while some of us are sad to see it go we can reminisce over all the fun the World's Largest Music Festival brought to our city.

Summerfest broke this year's festival down by the numbers.

718,144 people attended the 11-day music festival despite severe thunderstorm warnings on four of the days.

Over 2,000 artists gave performances, including some who had never attended a Summerfest before like Jennifer Lopez, Snoop Dogg, Lil Wayne, Bon Iver, Billie Eilish and more.

A whopping 56,500 pounds of food was collected in food donations for Hunger Task Force promotions, and 4,181 books were brought in on Northwestern Mutual's Make A Child Smile Day for the Next Door Foundation.

Oh yes, and don't forget about the special appearance from the giant inflatable unicorn because that is something that is worth remembering from this year as well.
