MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) - - They say all good things must come to an end, and for Memphis in May, it's a wrap for 2014. Despite a storm canceling the fireworks show, organizers say this year's series of events was a big success.

“We’re just happy we've done a good job of making Memphis proud, and highlighting our city to Panama and also highlighting panama's culture to Memphians,” Memphis in May Marketing Coordinator Holly Ford said.

Organizers expected larger crowds this year, especially because of the great weekend weather all month long, and attendees didn't disappoint.

“It's just nice to be outdoors and the music, and fireworks, it's the whole package,” Brian Minahan said.

“This year was great, the weather was great,” Lauren Byrd said, “Last year the weather was cold, but this year the weather is great.”

Everyone coming together to celebrate all things Memphis.

“The people I’ve met from all over that travel down just for this, just for the whole Memphis in May event,” Byrd said.

“The soul, people come together and they all have the same passion about the music and the events and the city, you can really tell when everyone gets together and starts celebrating,” Kim Edwards added.
