ENTERPRISE, Ala. (AP) - The second annual BamaJam Music & Arts
Festival has given an economic boost of $350,000 to local and state
coffers based on the sale of food and beverages during the festival
held in June.
The festival also raised $127,000 to go toward construction of a new Enterprise High School.
The second-year event grossed $5.8 million in sales.
BamaJam founder Ronnie Gilley of Enterprise said it usually takes such an event five to seven years to get in the black.
He said $6 million was spent on this year's event, but money spent for
infrastructure should not be charged off to one festival.
Sales taxes of $357,000 provide $84,000 for Enterprise, $56,000
for Coffee County and $217,000 for the state.
