While the crowds appeared docile, time will tell come Monday when arrest reports are available from the Kent Police Department. Police arrested 21 people during last year's festivities.

More than 100 officers from Kent and surrounding departments patrolled the streets to keep the peace, and extra measures were taken at the station to accomodate the expected high number of arrests.
