She said she got a lot of interest from Swamp People and that it was possible to arrange to have them at next year’s event.

“It’s getting bigger and bigger,” said Madden. “Last year we got between 1,500 and 1,600 and we’re estimating around 1,800 to 2,000. We’ve got to be able to accommodate to the increase.”

Powell said he agreed, however the Town needed to also focus on maintaining what they have and keep in mind that whatever they expand must also be maintained.

“Even if we break even on this event we did what we were meant to do,” said Council member James Daniels. “That’s bringing hundreds of people to come and see Esto.”

Sellers also added that this year there was going to be a vender with a large assortment of alligator items to purchase as well as a vender to sell food made from alligators.

The next Esto Town Council meeting is set for 7 p.m. on May 7 at the Esto Town Hall.
