Someone pointed out that the # of visitors last year might be 0.8 million, the # that doubled might be the # of food markets/specialty sales booths. If that’s true, 1.18/0.8=1.475. That’s not too shabby.
The importance of a good PR model/honorary ambassador? 😛
Over the course of 5 days, 2016 Ground Forces Festival attracted over 1.18 million visitors despite the unfavorable rainy condition, and it’s confirmed to have been a big help to Gyeryong’s local economy.
[The number of ?] was more than doubled compared to the previous year.
Sales at the festival marketplace was also more than two times higher than normal.
