September 3, 2008, 8:32 AM
Attendance reached an estimated 320,000 at the LifeLight Christian music festival over the weekend, west of Sioux Falls.
Turnout for the three-day event was reported to be the same as a year ago.
Organizers count cars in the parking lots and the number of riders who use a shuttle service to come up with an estimated number of people attending the free festival.
Lifelight co-founder Alan Greene says about 60,000 came Friday and 130,000 both Saturday and Sunday.
