NEW ULM-Bavarian Blast 2014 is off to a strong start. The Thursday night concert saw around 800 attendees, which is nearly double the numbers from last year. "We're up at least 400 from last year," said Dodie Wendinger, a member of the Bavarian Blast Board. While the gate numbers for Friday have yet to be calculated, early estimates placed more than 500 people there, as of 3:30 p.m.
