Last year's festival attracted some 200-thousand music lovers, pumping more than 6 million dollars into Mobile's local economy. Festival. While visitors from all over the world are welcomed to the annual event, organizers are dedicated to keeping everyone safe. Bayfest Executive Director Shana Jordan says fans can still bring their lawn chairs, but this year the chairs will be limited to a designated area. Safety is a major especially after the horrible stage collapse incident in Indiana. "Over the years we've been really fortunate we didn't have any major incidents at BayFest. Patrons will still be welcome to bring chairs, they will not be able to set them up in streets that might be needed for emergency vehicles," said Jordan.
