Franklin Street in Evansville looks very different than it did this time last night.

The food booths and parade floats transformed into street sweepers and garbage trucks Sunday morning as the tear down of the Fall Festival began before sunrise.

Members of the Nut Club enjoyed the last of the festival treats- hot bean soup on a chilly morning to top of what they say was a successful week.

"That's what we're here for is to do everything we can do for the local community. We had a really great festival. We had some rain, but you can't control the weather. So all in all, I talked to quite a few of the booth people in the last day or so and we had some really great crowds. I think we did really well," Fall Festival Chairman, Eric Shaw said. 

Nut Club members say they won't have a final attendance number for about a month, but say last year, they gave out nearly $250,000 in donations and they expect to exceed that this year.
