The Super Bowl Village has had a million visitors so far, sources tell Eyewitness News.

The village opened Jan. 27 and has been a huge attraction since then, with free concerts, street musicians, roaming entertainers as well as food and drink. It's one of the few Super Bowl attractions that is - potentially - absolutely free, and it's proven to be hugely popular.

On Friday, the crowds got out of control as tens of thousands of people flocked to downtown to see LMFAO. Many WTHR viewers who got stuck in the crowd reported that it took them 20 minutes to move through one block. Around a dozen minor injuries were reported.

As of Saturday, over 8,000 people have taken a ride on the zipline, which saw sold-out crowds on several days.

Over 216,000 people attended the NFL Experience, which charged a $25 fee to get in. That breaks the record for NFL Experience attendance out of all the cities that have hosted the event.
