Thousands will be in Traverse City to join in the celebration of  National Cherry Festival.

With the added people, Traverse City Police and event organizers are working together to make sure public safety is a top priority.

9 and 10's Marisa McKay and photojournalist Jeremy Erickson have more on what new security measures are in place this year.
