JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- An estimated 130,000 people braved the rain, sun and cold to attend the city's first annual One Spark festival.

Hundreds of vendors fought to capture the public's attention and nearly 50,000 votes in the 5-day invention showoff marathon.  

Jaguars owner, Shad Khan, even got into the mix by offering an additional investment of up to one million dollars to the creator who takes the top prize.

Here are key stats from the One Spark 2013 Closing Ceremony held Sunday.
o  Top 3 Vote Getters in Music: The 5 & Dime ($2,326.50), Boneshaker ($2,495.36) and Fathom Sphere ($2,509.43).
o  Top 3 Vote Getters in Technology: The Riverwalk Project ($2,448.45), Kona School ($3,137.96) and The Wall ($3,466.29).
