(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Saturday's gray skies didn't keep people away from the Trails West festival.  2,500 people were in attendance on Friday with even more expected Saturday.  Mallory Murray of the Trails West Marketing Committee says that very little sun and cooler temperatures kept the crowds happy.

"I think some people are wondering what the weather's going to do because of the clouds but it's not supposed to rain and it's actually kind of nice.  You're not going to get sun burned today, it's not 100 degrees like it's been in the past.  So we really encourage everyone to come on down," said Mallory Murray of Trails West Marketing.

In order to help attendance on Sunday, Trails West will be having a church service in the morning for the first time and admittance to the festival will be free until 2 pm.
