From the time of the opening by Councillor Neil Tungate at 11:00 am right through until Groovemeister left the stage shortly after 5:00 pm - The Town Centre was bustling with crowds and there was a real happy atmosphere in all of the Festival locations.
Final figures are not yet known but it is thought that up to 5 - 6,000 people may well have been at the Festival over the course of the day. Almost 1,000 people attended the Gifts and Crafts Fair at The New Milton Memorial Centre and the Community Association was equally busy with demonstrations and stalls by the groups that use that location.

In 2012, Ne Milton Town Council decided that it needed to have an outline Strategic Town Council Plan for the period 2012 - 2014.
This Plan was formally adopted by the Town Council at the start of 2012.
The Environment Agency has agreed to funding of £300,000 which could lead to a cliff stabilisation programme at Barton on Sea costing more than £15 million.
The action of water between layers of the famous fossil-bearing Barton clay means the cliffs there are sliding – or “slumping” – meaning the cliff edge gets ever closer to Marine Drive East and Marine Drive West and to homes and businesses.
The last major anti-erosion drainage works there was about 20 years ago.
Council coastal group officer Steve Cook will lead the project. He said funding for the major project would have to be obtained “but this is a step in the right direction”.
The £300,000 resulting from the application will pay for ground investigations to be carried out, examine alternative methods of stabilising the cliffs and build a business case. Ground works will take place in the coming 12 months and include borehole drilling and pumping tests.
