The Sweet 16 is bringing in people from all over the state, which is boding well for many Lexington businesses.

Naturally, visitors are flocking to Rupp Arena to cheer on their favorite teams, but they're also flooding local stores, boosting Lexington's economy.

However, between 15,000 and 18,000 extra bodies in the city also means a lot more traffic.

At the end of the day, most local residents agree that the pros outweigh the cons, and that the additional traffic is worth the bump in Lexington's wallet.
