Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The Electric Daisy Carnival is officially over.

This was the third year for EDC in the Las Vegas Valley and thousands of partygoers will be heading home Monday morning.

About 350,000 people attended the three-day event, which began on Friday.

EDC 2013 featured a total of 500 performers on 7 stages and throughout the venue. In addition  there were graffiti walls, amusement park rides, a makeshift wedding chapel and a spectacular fireworks show early Sunday morning.
